Drake's Place events

There are events for everyone here - it's a place to unwind, refuel, play table tennis or just let off steam.

Beautifully restored to its former glory, Drake’s Place is a hub for events and activities, with a lively programme each year. Come along and get involved - there are community days, craft fairs, art workshops, storytelling and performances, celebrations and lots more. Many events are accredited by Children's University

This award winning community space is a calm and relaxing oasis amidst the whirl of urban living. An accessible welcoming haven and a safe diverse habitat for wildlife.
