Flag Making Workshops

Tuesday 23 January - 13 February, 2 - 5pm at the Warm Hub

Taking inspiration from the RSC collection and Stratford town centre, artist Michelle Flint, will help you to create individual stitched paper collage designs for a flag that will be flown at the Birthday Celebrations on Saturday 20 April 2024. Each square uses colour and paper folding to bring the designs to life. 

Warm Hubs across Stratford-upon-Avon

Following on from the devastating impact of the pandemic, we are now facing an unprecedented cost-of-living crisis. In response, 'warm hubs' are being created across the country where people can find a safe, accessible, and warm environment during the day to reduce the cost of heating our own homes. They are also places where people can find friendly company and some optional activities.

Bishopton Social, Drayton Avenue, Monday, 10am - 1pm 

Stratford Library, Henley Street, Wednesday 2 - 4pm 
The library is also open for general use, 9am—5pm Monday — Friday, 10am—3pm Saturday

Venture House,  Avenue Farm Industrial Estate, Birmingham Road, Thursday, 9.30am - 12.30pm 

Clopton Connect, Ken Kennett Centre, Justin's Avenue, Friday 1 - 3.30pm

All warm hubs across the town include free hot drinks and snacks, a chance to sit and relax, free activities as well as information on how to save money on energy bills and places to go for support.

Warm hubs in Warwickshire

Warwickshire Rural Community Council’s (WRCC) Warm Hubs project, supported by Cadent, helps communities tackle social isolation and fuel poverty throughout Warwickshire and Solihull. They work with community groups, town and parish councils, community centres and village hall committees to create inclusive, community led Warm Hubs, running activities that encourage people to come together in safe, warm, welcoming places.
