"Regeneration through art." Sleaford Things to Do Tip by sourbugger

Sleaford Things to Do: 6 reviews and 14 photos

  The Hub of Sleaford
by sourbugger

Several cities in the UK have used lottery and european money to invest arts centres and galleries as a cataylst for re-generation. The Baltic complex in Gateshead is a good example of this approach or the Tate complex in St.Ives, Cornwall.

Sleaford is one of the smaller towns that has adopted this approach with the launch of 'The Hub', a national centre for showcasing craft work. It has been formed out of an old seed warehouse (Hubbard's seeds - hence the name). It currently contains two sallish exhibition spaces, a number of educational projects, cafe & shop. A number of workshops are springing up around it.

There is little to see at the moment, but it may well grow into something bigger and I'm told the various workshops are very well delivered.

Entrance is free, although activities are charged.
