Welcome to Wells Maltings

A major new cultural hub for North Norfolk

The new Maltings is starting – slowly and surely – to open its doors!

After many years of planning, development, fundraising and community input, the former Maltings building on Staithe Street has been transformed.

This £5m project, supported by Heritage Lottery Fund, Coastal Communities Fund, North Norfolk District Council, The International Fund for Arts and Culture, Business Rates Pool Fund, Clore Duffield Foundation, Garfield Weston Foundation, Foyle Foundation, FLAG fund and many others, plus generous private donors, began in earnest in 2016. The main work completed in May 2018, and the new complex is now opening its doors for its initial preview season. Between June and August, we’ll feature a select few activities to help us test the new building and its facilities, ahead of formal launch and opening in September 2018



If you wish to have a behind the scenes look, or if you are a local community group or interest and wish to hire any of our rooms or facilities, get in touch.
