Calling all rappers, poets, spoken word performers and songwriters… If you write your own material in any word-based genre then we need YOU!
A lot of the great things at Corban Estate happen behind closed doors: we've got over twenty artists and organisations working on site, from recent graduates to internationally acclaimed senior artists and performing arts groups.

For one day each year we throw open those studio doors for the public, with our Open Arts Day, which offers a chance to meet the artists as well as studio tours, hands-on workshops and more.
During the rest of the year we also offer studio tours for small groups: contact us if you'd like to organise something and we'll see which artists might be available:

The local historical society also offers tours of the estate, revealing the stories behind the buildings and the life of the pioneering Corbans family. Contact us for more information.
