After an encouragingly well-attended and successful opening event, the Newstead Arts Hub has now finished its inaugural exhibition, which put on display the high standard of work from our local artists. Those of us assisting with the exhibition frequently heard superlatives from visitors; a combination of delight at the restored building and being impressed with the quality of art on display. Over the three weekends, we averaged around 100 visitors per weekend, with many offering support by joining the Friends of the Newstead Arts Hub.

InauguralExhibit1We are now thinking ahead to a calendar of events for the coming year. And this is where you come in…

Are you a local artist who would like to exhibit your work? Or join together with other artists to stage a group show? Perhaps the railway building would be a suitable venue for your activity, ranging from workshops, to creative space or music rehearsal. The venue is a quiet, light-filled space that may equally be appropriate for small conferences, study, writing or sketching groups. Alternatively, you may have a suggestion for an activity you’d like to see happen.

We are open to creative ideas and expressions of interest. Get in touch with the committee either by

Meanwhile, our next exhibition will display the natural history photography of Curly Hartup, opening Saturday 10th October at 3pm.
