The centre is now open all week except Tuesdays.


This season we welcome new talks from Paul Elliott along with a new season of Art Decades.

Paul Elliott introduces a series of talks which open a debate on mental health. These talks will include guest speakers and the opportunity to engage in discussion with an emphasis on how creativity can be used for positive change.

Art Decades  reflects the artistic ethos of Whitstable’s vibrant music scene, this series examines art’s pervasive influence on rock. Art Decades will include stunning imagery and fantastic music – as well as original artwork, some by famous names, never exhibited in public till now. The 2020 series  attempt to unveil the hidden lives of rock artists outside the recording studio and finds out how they coped when they were really tested to the limit.

Booking is recommended.
