Edventure: Frome

A School for Community Enterprise
Welcome to Edventure. We run courses, events and programmes in community entrepreneurship.  Here, people come together to start things up; to gain transferable skills & experience; to build connections; to get support to realise their ideas; and to gain the sense and confidence that it is possible to create a radically different world. What we care about is contributing to a strong community, growing meaningful livelihoods and building ventures as part of a sustainable, zero carbon economy that works for all.

Our Courses

Learning through experience. Gaining transferable skills. Making a real difference.

Our Enterprises & Initiatives

On our flagship Start-Up Course, students learn by setting up a real community enterprise as part of a team - gaining skills and experience whilst making a tangible difference in Frome.

With local partners we create enterprise solutions to local challenges, and prepare the ground for a community start-up.


Working with a team of students on our edventure START-UP course and the wider community we make the start-up happen.


Edventure or a local not-for-profit partner takes the enterprise to the next level to enable us to do more of this work and help build a community orientated economy.
