Sorry, we're closed

Despite our best efforts over the last few weeks to avoid any disruptions to services we’ve had to take the difficult decision to temporarily close Cornerstone Arts Centre and the Nourish café as we need to carry out urgent maintenance work that affects the heating of the building.

January and February are traditionally quiet times for the centre, and we’re hoping to find alternative venues or dates for the events coming up, to keep disruption to a minimum.

We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience and any disappointment following this news, but given the cold weather we’re having, it’s very important to us to make sure we’re looking after the health and well-being of our visitors and staff.

Didcot Garden Party - Science

Saturday 21 Aug 2021 to Sunday 22 Aug 2021

Tags: Community

Saturday at Didcot Town Square

11am - 4pm

This weekend is Science week with Bright Sparks Science running a range of interactive workshops and experiments throughout the day to engage children and their families in the wonders of science.  Across 4 different stations, Bright Sparks will be running sessions in:

  • Giant Bubble Making
  • Creating Catapults from Lolly sticks in the engineering challenge
  • Exploring dinosaur footprints and making your own
  • Explore space with the Astronaut Glove Box Challenge

Alongside the interactive science activities, we also have our giant outdoor games for the Garden Party (Connect 4, Giant Jenga, Snakes and Ladders) and of course our Nourish cafe bar will be open through the day providing an enticing range of coffee, cakes, milkshakes, smoothies and our signature bagels.

Didcot Garden Party is a summer long installation in Didcot Town Square, injecting colour, life and fun into the heart of our town centre.  The Garden Party will feature a range of shows, workshops, showcases, events and installations across every weekend from July 24th to September 4th.  Most activity will take place between 11am - 4pm each Saturday and Sunday, but the Garden Party site itself will be open throughout the week.

The town square itself will be transformed for the Garden Party into a mini-festival site, providing a welcoming and relaxed environment.  So if you want to try your hand out at circus skills, watch a folk gig, marvel at some street theatre, give Parkour a go, take part in an arts workshop or just fancy wiling away the summer afternoons in giant bean bags with a drink of something chilled, we've got you covered.
