From October onwards our team will be working out of a brand new co-working space in Huyton town centre - as well as our current workspace in Haydock Street, St Helens, shared with the lovely folks at Wonder Arts.
From the moment we met the Make crew, we knew this space would be perfect for us. They’ve been supporting creatives and emerging artists with co-working and collaborative spaces since 2012. Make Huyton Village will be the social enterprise’s third space (following on from Make Hamilton Square and Make North Docks). We’re sure this new development, in partnership with Knowsley Council, is going to bring lots of moments for collaboration and connection and bring us even closer to communities in Huyton and the wider borough.
We’ve loved learning about the history of the building which was most recently a Boots pharmacy, and was from the 1930s to the 1960s a much loved cinema, nicknamed the Ranch because of the Westerns it played.
Plus, we’ve already got plans brewing for something special on the high street so watch this space!
Make Huyton Village can be found at 47-49 Derby Rd, Huyton, Liverpool L36 9UQ. Just one train stop from St Helens and Liverpool, on Huyton High Street in the old Boots building, opposite The Coffee House and close to new cafe, play and events space Huyton Village Green.
Our work happens in communities across St Helens, Knowsley and beyond! Whether that’s in schools, or community organisations like BuzzHub St Helens, Torus Foundation, Incredible Edible, St Helens Book Stop or Chrysalis, our producers and artists always work in partnership with amazing community organisations - these are the places where the magic happens.
The best way to connect with us will always be on email@example.com or via our social media channels.
