We provide arts and crafts activities at lots of local events, such as Leigh Maritime Festival and Leigh Regatta, and at local venues such as Leigh Community Centre and Hadleigh Old Fire Station, so please be sure to check out our calendar from time to time : The Art Ministry Events Calendar Thanks to support from the Aviva Community Fund the activities will either be free of charge or an affordable charge will be made - see individual events for details.


We will be holding our Annual Exhibition of Works at Hadleigh Old Fire Station on Thursday, 6th July. In 2016 nearly 100 people came to see what we get up at The Art Ministry. You can see pictures of that event here.


We are running our annual competition to find a picture to hang in the Castle Point Mayors Office. It is for year 5 and 6 children living in or going to school in Castle Point. The theme is A celebration of Castle Point, since it is the 25th anniversary of the creation of the Borough. All entries will be displayed at the Hadleigh Old Fire Station on 6th July. In 2016 we received over 300 entries. The Mayor selected five winning pictures which have been framed and put up in their office. The winners have met the Mayor to be awarded a certificate and to see their pictures on display. You can see some of the winners here. Details of how to enter are here. Closing date is 29th June.



The Art Ministry will be providing free arts and crafts activities at the Lions Mid-Summer Sports Day and Fun Festival for Disabled People on 15th July at The King John School, Thundersley.
