The Ship Inn Arts Centre is a non-profit organisation founded by Vanessa and Georgi in Spring 2022.

Their mission is to share knowledge, love and passion for the creative arts with everyone.


The venue emerged amid the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic when Ashford Hill’s historic Ship Inn pub was reborn as the Ship Inn Arts Centre and Country Hotel.


They want to share the beauty and inspiration of music art, crafts and wellbeing to stimulate and delight all who come through our door.

They hope to open eyes to new exciting possibilities in the world.
