Creative Arts Hub website goes live!

Did you know that Q20 lives alongside a whole host of fantastic talent, all housed under one roof?

Creative Arts Hub is to be found on Dockfield Road, Shipley. It's where you'll find Q20 Theatre (the home of Q20 Events) and many other great artistic businesses, including printing workshops, small textile companies, a pottery and more! The website for the building and its artistic community went live today, so make sure you check it out! (You can also see the building's own Twitter account to get all the latest updates.)
We're very excited to announce that the building is opening its doors and having an open day on Saturday 13th September. So if you're creative and looking for a space in which to do something with your talents, why not come and see what we have on offer?

We're always glad to host projects of local creatives (until recently, Creative Arts Hub was home to the Nydza School of Dance) - currently we're getting ready to play host to a pilates class, scheduled to begin with taster sessions on Thursday 11th September, and then continuing as a regular class from the following Thursday.
We're happy to speak to everyone and anyone interested in joining us - whether to run your own class or to get involved in one that's already running.

Let us know if you'd like to call Dockfield Road's Creative Arts Hub home!

Q20 characters coming to Llandudno!

We've been sending some of our favourite characters to the Victoria Shopping Centre in Llandudno, Wales as part of their summer seaside-themed weekend fun!
Get down to Llandudno every Saturday until the end of August: Punch & Judy, Captain Hook, face painting and balloon modelling is still on the way!

Did you meet Percy Veer in Bradford yesterday?

Bradford has been using its big screens in Forster Square to show some exciting kids movies this summer, including Turbo and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

Q20 were asked to provide some fun kids entertainment, so we sent along a mad scientist or two! Our nutty professor Percy Veer was there - lots of fun was had in his little peddle car!

Commemorating 100 years since the beginning of the First World War

This year marks 100 years since the beginning of the First World War.

Up and down the country, people are taking part in events to remember the events of a war that claimed the lives of thousands of soldiers, young men and old, and the civilians whose homes, towns and lives were irreparably changed by the battles between 1914 - 1918. 

Q20 are proud to be taking part in a number of these events, supplying a memorable cast of characters to pay homage of the many people who contributed to the war effort.
