Latest news & updates from Qube, Oswestry

Dear Blogger

Message from Qube, Oswestry - so much goes on in our little local town.

Latest news and updates from Qube

Hello from us all at Qube...

Welcome to our October newsletter! 

We have really enjoyed seeing so many people back at Qube this month. Our popular Art History, Tai Chi and Life Drawing sessions have made a very welcome return. More workshops are being added over the coming week so please keep an eye on our courses page. Take a look at our other arts activities and events below.

We need your help! Our much needed hot meal delivery service, with OsNosh, is still providing meals, grocery boxes and support to vulnerable people living locally but without help this service will be forced to end soon. Just £5 would help provide a meal to someone who would go without. Can you help by donating? Find out about how this service supports members of our community and also how you can donate.

We have recently welcomed a new addition to our team. Sam Teare has joined us as our new Well-being and Befriending Officer. She is very much looking forward to hosting her first Tuesday Social Group next week. If you would like to join team Qube we currently have two vacancies. We are looking for a Social Prescribing Triage Officer (deadline 1st October) and an Arts Development Officer (deadline 8th October)

Please feel free to call or email us if we can help you or someone you know. You can contact us on 01691 656882 or email

Here is some of our latest news and services...

We urgently need your help!
During lockdown in 2020, Qube and Oswestry Community Kitchen, OsNosh joined forces to provide weekly hot meals to vulnerable members of the community. We're now in urgent need of donations to keep this service going. Can you help us raise £10,000? Find out more about the service and see the campaign video here...
New Exhibition: Mosses and Marshes
An exhibition of video, sound, prints & paintings by Andrew Howe (UK) & Kim V. Goldsmith (Australia). Their Mosses & Marshes project spans two countries, both with Ramsar listed wetlands of international importance, bringing together artists, land managers & scientists to reimagine the future of these landscapes.

Courses and workshops
We've added more courses and workshops to our programme. Coming soon is an Introduction to Watercolour painting course with artist Joseph Schneider. There are also a few places left on our upcoming Life Drawing sessions and a choice of two Wreath Making workshops with Georgie Wright.
