  • This October we'll be celebrating volunteering, and at the heart of this is our 2017 Volunteer Party.

    All of our volunteers are invited to this special afternoon, intended as a 'thank you' for their hard work and dedication to the Centre this year.

    We'll have live music and plenty to eat and drink - come down and enjoy a relaxed afternoon celebrating the wonderful people who do so much to support Queens Park Arts Centre.

  • Our hugely-popular Art & Craft Fair returns for its fifteenth consecutive year.

    We'll have a wide selection of the region's best art and craft to view and buy, including jewellery, glass, textiles, cards, paintings and ceramics – perfect for Christmas presents!

    Exhibitors already confirmed for the event include potter Elaine Wells, who appeared in this year's series of The Great Pottery Throwdown and who will be selling her beautiful individual wheel thrown stoneware pots, jugs, dishes, cookware, bowls and mugs.

    There'll be craft activities for children running throughout the day, and there'll be a chance for young visitors to pay a visit to Santa's Grotto too!

    Homemade cakes will be on sale in the Coffee Bar, plus we'll have a BBQ, soft drinks, tea and fresh coffee - and the Limelight Bar will be open during the afternoon serving beer, wines and spirits.

    Free parking is available both on site and at our nearby overflow car park.

    Entry: £2.00 / £1.00 concessions & members (U14s go free)
    All proceeds contribute to the Centre’s fundraising campaign.
    There will be a small charge for the craft activities and Santa's Grotto.
