Cornerstone will keep creating!

Following government advice about Coronavirus, Cornerstone Arts Centre is currently closed to the public. Visit our blog post for more information on this closure: here.

Cornerstone Arts Centre is still Didcot's community hub even in this unprecedented time where we can't be physically open. We will continue to illuminate theatre, visual arts, community spirit and everything else under our umbrella in the best way we possibly can online. 

For a while, our website is going to look a little different. We are creating pages with details of our new digital initiatives including virtual galleries, streaming theatre and bringing classes into your living rooms so you can enjoy us even during this period. We will continue to be a community resource and we look forward to seeing you again in person when this is all over.

Calling all residents of Didcot and beyond!

Come together, get creative and make a wish for Didcot.

Cornerstone Arts Centre, in partnership with Didcot Garden Town, has set you the creative challenge to make a small leaf to celebrate Didcot's green future. Use anything you can to create a leaf and make it about the size of your hand.

Once you’ve made your leaf, take a photo of your wonderful home creation and email it to and add in the subject of your email My leaf for Didcot.

When you send the image, you’ll need to include some extra information:

  • the name you would like to use as the creator of your artwork
  • the title of your artwork
  • a wish you have for Didcot. Complete the sentence 'In five years' time, I wish Didcot would have...' (20 words max.)
  • tell us about the materials you have used to create your artwork

The image of your leaf will be published on Cornerstone's online gallery below and, once social distancing measures are lifted, you will be invited to bring your work of art to help create a tree installation at Cornerstone, which will feature in Didcot Garden Town's Garden Party event.

As lockdown has been extended we've removed the submission deadline to allow for more people to join in & get arty during this time. 

NB. By emailing us your picture you are giving permission for us to use the work in the online gallery and for us to email you about the tree sculpture event.

Cornerstone and Didcot Garden Town are brought to you by South Oxfordshire District Council.
