This month’s Crafty Girl’s Night Out is skipping to the second Wednesday of the month (10th July) because the bees are taking over the Hub!
Jan Doyle from Newbury and District Beekeepers’ Association will be coming to talk about all aspects of honeybees from pollinators, to providers of medicine and honey. Find out the ways in which the beekeeper looks after them and what we in turn can do to help.
There will be a Q&A at the end of the talk and, best of all, honey tasting!
This is an event arranged by Hungerford Summer Festival and tickets are free, although there will be a retiring collection.

Thank you everyone who came to the new ArtSpace in the Hub yesterday, our monthly drawing workshop – and thank you to Shirley Cartey for providing such a beautiful and varied collection of pots and vases to draw. The group dabbled with pencil, charcoal and even collage, working from different angles and producing both quick, spontaneous sketches and longer, more considered drawings.
The next ArtSpace is on Sunday 3rd February, 2-5pm, when we will be drawing organic shapes – plants and driftwood. Everyone is welcome – even those who say they can’t draw! Bring your own materials if you wish but there will be plenty of paper, pencils, charcoal etc to try out. Tickets are £10, including refreshments.
The perfect space to showcase art and crafts! TheCurve@HungerfordHub opened this weekend for its first exhibition, selling works by local artists.
Next weekend, TheCurve will be hosting a pop-up shop. If you are looking for something a little different this Christmas, TheCurve could provide the solution with affordable and unique gifts handmade by local crafters, artists and artisans. Everything sold in TheCurve is original so not only will you be supporting a local crafter, you will also be supporting the Hub, the roof over our library.
Opening times: Friday 7th, 10am-7pm and Saturday 8th December, 10am-5.30pm.
10% commission on all sales (20% on cards) going to Hungerford Library & Community Trust, a registered charity.
We are very pleased to announce another step forward in the development of Hungerford Hub – we have created a permanent exhibition space – The Curve@Hungerford Hub – for local artists and artisans to exhibit and sell their work, and we will be launching the space next month with two events.
The first is a Christmas Exhibition of work by local artists on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th December curated by Shirley Cartey and Andi Mulholland. The Curve will be open from 10am to 6pm on the Friday and 10am to 4.30pm on the Saturday.
The second is a Pop-up Shop showcasing beautiful gifts, hand-made by local artists and crafters. The shop will be open on Friday 14th December, 10am to 7pm and Saturday 15thDecember, 10am to 5.30pm
Everything sold in The Curve will be original and unique, with 10% of sales (20% on cards) going to Hungerford Library & Community Trust, the charity established to support Hungerford Hub. As well as raising funds, the Hub team are committed to engaging with the community and hope that this will be another reason for people to visit the Hub.
If you would like to exhibit in the Christmas Exhibition, contact the organisers via email@example.com for more information. Similarly, if you are a local artist or crafter and would like to hold your own exhibition or pop-up shop in The Curve, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
