The hub, formerly located at Space to Create, now has its own building at 53 Eccleston Street, which it shares with the Prescot Historic Society and the Townscape Heritage Initiative.

This Saturday, 28 June, it opens its doors to the public from 10am to 4pm.

The open day programme includes demonstrations of Elizabethan crafts, clothes-dyeing techniques and yarn-spinning, and the Prescot Historic Society will be on hand to chat about its extensive archives and show off its future plans.
