KATFM Presents the Ashford Arts Centre.

Ashford Arts Centre is the first building set-up and managed by KATFM CIC to support and nurture small and micro-sized businesses in the creative and performing arts.


The tiny theatre at Ashford Arts Centre was set-up to film and record songs, movies, TV shows, theatrical pieces and other works created by Rhonda Merrick.


Ashford Arts Centre is home to several studios run by music and dance professionals who were displaced due to budget cuts in schools or the loss of studio space after the building housing their studios were sold. All resident professionals at Ashford Arts Centre were in need of a permanent space to set up and run their businesses. The centre also offers use of a multi-purpose room to community groups and the tiny theatre in the Rhonda Merrick Studio, is occasionally available for outside gatherings of independent music, theatre and cinematic events.
