Volunteering Opportunities Available Now!

Standard

The Henderson Hub is nearing completion and is already holding events staffed by wonderful volunteers, including our recent art exhibition and film events.

Our Foyer bar / tea shop (Elvira’s) will be opening very soon, and we need volunteers to help out for two-hour sessions, Monday to Saturdays (Wednesday and Saturday mornings only).

Duties will not be heavy but will involve helping the smooth running of a refreshments venue and answering any questions our visitors might have.  No washing up required thanks to our wonderful dishwasher!

If you would like to spend that time in convivial surroundings with good company, a free cuppa, and at the same time help the Henderson HUB to thrive then please contact us on the details below.

We are delighted that we are one of the host locations for Herts Open Studios this September with no less than six local artists exhibiting their work in the ArtHUB gallery space.

Open every day of the week from 9th – 30th September 2017, you can pop in between 10.00 and 16.00 (Friday only 14.00 – 16.00) to the Henderson Hub on the High Street in Abbots Langley and take a look around – for free!  

There is no obligation to buy anything, but much of the work on display is for sale.

Are you sitting comfortably?

new seatingIt’s here!!!

The new extra-comfy, all singing and dancing, collapsible seating,  Hoorah!  Funded by Three Rivers District Council, the seating not only means a more comfortable experienced for our film, theatre and event audiences, but also a better view.

AND it also collapses to make way for table and chair seating.  Oh, and it can act as a room divider to allow us to host our gallery exhibitions in the hall whilst groups can use the stage end at the same time.

Awesome eh?  If you haven’t had a chance to try out the seats yet, then please do check out what’s on in the next few weeks and give them a whirl.  See you soon!

The Spring 2017 ArtHUB exhibition was a great success, with over 700 people visiting the exhibition and nearly 40 artists exhibiting their work.   Those who attended got to vote on their favourite piece, and so without further ado…. the winner is……

ArtHub Spring 2017 a Great Success!

Standard

20170213_182843The Henderson Hub’s first ever art exhibition has gotten off to a flying start this week, with hundreds of people through the door to look at the wide range of 2D artwork on display – all from local artists.

As well as more established artists, we have hosted artwork from newcomers who have never displayed their work before – and all have been appreciated by Abbots Langley residents from across the area.

A few pieces have even been sold (three on our first day!) and the range of greetings cards have also proved incredibly popular with visitors, young and old.
