Covid-19 - Update for Centre Users

Last Updated: 29/05/2020 11:08

In line with the latest government guidance, Queens Park Arts Centre's main building remains temporarily closed to the public.

However, we're delighted to be offering a new series of online workshops and courses run via Zoom by some of our talented tutors. Topics confirmed so far include pottery, yoga, painting & drawing, crochet and creative writing. Click here for the latest information.

Furthermore, we will be trialling a 'Click & Collect' service - run from the Centre's car park - which will enable students to purchase materials needed for some of the online classes. Click here for the full Terms & Conditions relating to this service. 

PLEASE NOTE: Despite the new 'Click & Collect' service, the main building remains closed to the public. We appreciate many Centre users - especially potters - will want to collect their work or bring some in for firing, however we must insist on postponing this until we believe it can be facilitated safely. Whilst the Centre's programme is evolving to adapt to circumstances, we are still closed to the public for the time being and thank students for their continued patience and understanding.

As a result of our temporary closure several workshops and performances which will be postponed or cancelled. All ticket holders are entitled to swap their booking to the revised date / time. Those unable to do so (or whose events are cancelled outright) will receive a refund, to be processed when the staff are able to return to the QPAC office. Ticket holders are welcome to donate the cost of their ticket in support of the Centre; our sincere thanks to all those who have made such a generous donation to help ensure the Centre is in the best possible position to re-open when circumstances allow.

Administration of the revised bookings and exchanges / refunds will be a massive task for our staff team - once again we thank you for your patience as we continually review and revise our programme in light of the latest government guidelines.  

We appreciate that the current situation is concerning for all, and all of those who attend workshops, performances, exhibitions and events at the Centre will be affected. It is our aim to both follow government guidance to protect the public, and also to safeguard Queens Park’s long-term operations for future generations.

Kind regards,

The Queens Park Arts Centre Team
