Garstang Arts Centre

The staff and trustees of the Arts Centre wish all our members and customers a very Happy Christmas.  We look forward to better times in the New Year when we can open our doors and all meet up again.

Garstang Poetry Group 

The Arts Centre will remain closed until further notice. Like all the groups the Poetry Group will be affected. It is as yet unknown when the Arts Centre will re-open. 

Gary has sent out some very interesting poems from our talented members. Like many of you I have been reading poems at home. One such book is Other Men’s Flowers, a collection of poems chosen surprisingly by Lord Wavell. This book will probably be available in the Library. Try and keep up contact with Group Members, by phone, letter or email if you can. Hopefully we will meet again next year.

Enjoy the Festive Season . 

With best wishes,  Marie Whalley (Secretary).


Hello fellow “Songbirds”. I hope you are all well and getting through this awful time we are experiencing. I trust you are singing to the radio, dancing round the kitchen and keeping yourselves upbeat throughout our mutual love of music and singing. Let us hope that we can all be together again as early as possible in 2021. In the meantime on behalf of you all may I wish you  A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS and may the New Year bring us all peace, joy and above all the very best of good health. Stay well, stay safe and “Keep Singing”. Remember what Captain Sir Tom says “Tomorrow will be a good day”. Love to you all. Avril Bevan

Garstang Floral Art Group

June and Mary would like to wish all our Floral Art Members a Very Happy Christmas and we live in the hope of a much better New Year for 2021.  We thank you for your patience and assure you we will be back as an active group when circumstances allow.

Take care, stay safe and we hope to meet together in 2021.

The Book Club

The Book Club was a new venture for the Arts Centre this year. Unfortunately we were just getting started when the lockdown began. Of course the silver lining is that we have more time to read. We’ve certainly read more books this year than we have in a long time, including some old favourites. Hopefully next year as everything starts getting back to normal we’ll be able to resume our meetings. We’re sure that you’ll have lots of recommendations and favourites to share. 

In the meantime we’re not out of the woods yet so stay safe and enjoy your Christmas reading. 

Have a good Christmas. We’re looking forward to meeting again next year. 

Linda and Sandra
