Arts. Culture. Community.

We aim to offer a creative space that enriches lives and encourages involvement in all artforms and to provide opportunities to develop creative practices and grow new audiences. HOFS is currently home to nineteen individual creative practitioners, Open Arts and the Hadleigh & Thundersley Community Archive in our twenty affordable creative workspaces.

HOFS (Hadleigh Old Fire Station) aims to be a vibrant arts centre at the heart of our community. By providing creative and cultural activities we aim to combat isolation and promote well-being.

We are proud to be developing working partnerships with Estuary Festival and other regional arts organisations.

Hadleigh Old Fire Station is owned by Essex County Council (ECC) and the day-to-day running is being undertaken by volunteers. HOFS Creative Workspaces are currently licensed by ECC.
