The Hub at St Mary's in Lichfield has announced its 2022 programme and are set to welcome audiences to the venue for what they hope is a year full of performance, exhibitions and music.

With support from the Culture Recovery Fund, the venue are now able to make their offer more accessible, inclusive and ambitious for Lichfield audiences.

The Hub Creative Director, Anthony Evans, said: ‘When we set about creating The Hub it was essential that it was accessible, open to all and relevant to the community, which is why we have worked so hard to make our flagship 2022 exhibitions free of charge. The pandemic naturally knocked us off course but thanks to our Culture Recovery support we are looking forward to offering lots of wonderful activities and events at The Hub."

In January, the venue will host May The Toys Be With You, a Star Wars Exhibition complete with Stormtroopers, that will delight young people and grandparents alike. Whilst in May, Luke Jerram’s GAIA will be suspended from The Hub's rooftop. A huge illuminated 7 metre replica of the Earth, to remind us all that the time is now, to do all we can to change our habits and to protect our world. Both of these events will be offered free to view for everyone. 

There will also be new shows from Lichfield Arts and Lichfield Festival, including the opening The Alter Comedy Club, Lichfield’s answer to ‘Live at The Apollo’.
