Queens Park Arts Centre is the creative hub, home and heart of the arts in Aylesbury Vale.

Since opening in 1980 the Centre has developed a programme of over 70 weekly workshops in artistic disciplines such as pottery, needlework, drama, dance, woodwork, jewellery-making, painting & drawing, yoga and much more.

The majority of workshops are drop-in and pay-as-you-go, allowing students the freedom to take part when it suits them. The joy of Queens Park is the opportunity to be creative in your own time and on your own terms, with experienced tutors on hand to advise and instruct as much or as little as you require. All are welcome – complete beginners and experienced hands are invited to use the facilities.

Alongside the weekly workshops there are regular special one-day classes and short courses, exploring such activities as stained glass and blacksmithing. There are also regular holiday workshops for children, not to mention weekly classes for younger artists – so there really is something for everyone!

The Centre is also home to the Limelight Theatre, an intimate 120-seater fringe venue offering an affordable, lively programme of live music, comedy and theatre, including some of the best local talent alongside acclaimed acts from all over the country. In recent years the venue has welcomed comedians such as Chris Ramsey, Sean Hughes and Lucy Porter, as well as music from the likes of Phil Beer, Marcus Malone and local legends John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett. The Limelight is home to the weekly Aylesbury Folk Club as well as in-house storytelling company Unbound, who stage regular theatrical productions, including the hugely-popular Queens Park Pantomime.

Queens Park also houses two gallery spaces displaying exhibitions from local, national and even international artists. Annual events at the Centre include the May Maker’s Fair showcasing in-house talent, the autumn Art & Craft Fair welcoming the region’s best artists and craftspeople, plus various other festivals and fairs throughout the year.

Other facilities include a licensed bar and coffee shop, a shop selling art supplies and a library of reference books. The Centre is a short 5-minute walk from the Town Centre. Please contact 01296 424332 / info@qpc.org for a brochure.
