About us
The Yiewsley and West Drayton Arts Council are a longstanding organisation established to deliver cultural activities in Yiewsley and West Drayton. We run Southlands Arts Centre and oversee many cultural group activities and local events.

Our people

The organisation consists mainly of representatives from affiliated local cultural groups and enterprises. The running of the organisation is overseen by Trustees and an elected executive committee, with supporting activities carried out under a series of subcommittees and organising groups.

Our history

The Yiewsley and West Drayton Arts Council was established in 1964 when the London Government Act 1963 came into force, creating Greater London and the new London Boroughs. The Yiewsley and West Drayton Arts Council was set up to help create and embed a strong local identity for the immediate local area and the new London Brough of Hillingdon, a link that continues strongly to this day.

The organisation has gone from strength to strength, acquiring the tenure for what is now Southlands Arts Centre since 1965 and hosting innumerable events and festivals along the way.

Our future
The Yiewsley and West Drayton Arts Council have ambitious plans for the continued development of arts and culture for all in the local area. In the last two years we have established a wide range of new activities across cultural genres - from youth theatre, film, photography, drama workshops, creative writing, textile design, we even have a Britpop ukulele group. We have established a full calendar of public activities from professional art and photography exhibitions, youth art, music festivals like SouthlandsLIVE and we plan many more new things going forward. Our new three year development plan will soon be found on this page.
