Hub Sleaford

The Hub delivers an inspiring programme of contemporary craft, design, dance and creative arts experiences, in Sleaford, across North Kesteven and beyond.

Home to the national centre for craft and design, our celebrated exhibitions showcase contemporary artists and makers from around the world. Our shop stocks an ever-changing collection of handmade craft objects and design gifts, and our CaféBar is a great place to enjoy locally sourced specialty food and drink.

The Hub offers a dynamic learning programme of workshops, talks, classes, competitions, special events and performances for all people, ages and abilities. We deliver creative activities in schools, community & care settings and online; and we work with our communities & partners to coordinate participatory arts projects, events, festivals, celebrations and public commissions. 

Within the Hub are spaces available to hire, including a dance/multi-use studio that is also suitable for conferences and events, a workshop space and catering services. For more information contact

We’re also home to Design-Nation, the UK’s leading portfolio network for designers & makers of craft, design, and product.

The Hub is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation, owned and supported by North Kesteven District Council and operated by Lincs Inspire Limited.
