New Art Exhibition, Message from our Chairman

Thursday 9th October

The trustees of Blackfriars Arts Centre are really excited to be able to stage an exhibition by such talented local artists. It is many years since Blackfriars last staged anything like this, and we hope that many people who remember the old days, as well as a new generation, will come and view the works on display. We certainly intend that art exhibitions such as this will become a regular feature of Blackfriars again. Blackfriars was founded by local people who were interested in the arts in all forms, and since saving Blackfriars from closure nearly six years ago, the new trustees have been determined to return the centre to its roots. Unfortunately over the years we have lost many of the societies who used to meet at Blackfriars, such as art and photography groups, writing and poetry societies, as well as jazz and folk clubs. The directors would be interested in hearing from anyone who would like to re-establish any of these activities within our walls. We are trying to diversify the type of productions that are seen on our stage also, and anyone who wants to know what is going on within our walls can ring the Box Office (Boston 363108), or look on our new website ( Stuart Bull (Chairman, Blackfriars Trustees) This new Art Exhibition will be open to the public from Saturday 18th October 2014.

Blackfriars undoubtedly plays a very important role as Boston's centre for entertainment and the arts. It is home to two very successful local amateur dramatic and operatic groups, as well as hosting a varied program of professional stage productions.
