Uxbridge halts activities

Uxbridge will still remain open for community use.

Uxbridge Arts and Culture have cancelled its 2021 programmes and events.

The Howick Village-situated arts and culture facility is the heart of the local community.

During the usual seasons, it delivers classes and workshops, theatre productions, music events, exhibitions and hire spaces are available.

In a social media post on November 4, Uxbridge wrote that it had made the difficult decision not to reopen its doors until 2022.

“In light of recent announcements, we decided to provide a bit of clarity to our community and cancel the rest of the year’s programme and events and start afresh in 2022,” Uxbridge said.

Vickie Bowers, centre director of Uxbridge, clarified to the Times that while their programmes are not operating until next year, they will not be completely closed.

“We’re still available for community use.”

Uxbridge will provide refunds as no amount will be carried over to 2022.

“We will be in touch with you and ask for your patience and understanding as we are currently working through all the refunds.”

“Thank you everyone for your support.”
