Hub – A National Centre for Craft and Design

After a year-long £1.2m refurbishment, the Hub is now open!

The Hub delivers an inspiring programme of contemporary craft, design, dance and creative arts experiences, in Sleaford, across North Kesteven and beyond.

Home to the national centre for craft and design, our celebrated exhibitions showcase contemporary artists and makers from around the world. Our shop stocks an ever-changing collection of handmade craft objects and design gifts, and our Café-Bar is a great place to enjoy locally sourced specialty food and drink.

The Hub offers a dynamic learning programme of workshops, talks, classes, competitions, special events and performances for all people, ages and abilities. We deliver creative activities in schools, community & care settings and online; and we work with our communities & partners to coordinate participatory arts projects, events, festivals, celebrations and public commissions.
