The Hub, St Andrews Square
MAPP, the company that manages St Andrews Square in Droitwich, is opening a Community Hub. The space is flexible, with comfortable seating, display space for artwork, space for local artisans, informal meeting areas, and the option of a small stage for live performances.
The Hub will be controlled by MAPP and has invited Droitwich Arts Network to help create a welcoming and relaxing space incorporating various forms of art. Other organisations will be encouraged to engage with the Hub to make it an attractive venue for the community, and engender a sense of well-being. The Hub will provide shoppers and the local community with a facility that does not currently exist in the town centre, as well as supporting local artisans and local arts based organisations.
The Opening Event planned for the 25th of June has been postponed due to the extension of Covid-19 restrictions.
The Hub will open for normal activities on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th June, and then on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10am to 3.30pm.
June Meeting of Droitwich Arts Network
Due to the opening of the Hub, everyone is invited to visit the Hub on Friday 25th June (its first day) or on Saturday 26th June. There will not be a Zoom meeting during June.
