What’s on in December 2022 at The Art House

The year is drawing to a close and it has been a full one for us – we’re not done yet and have some really good events lined up to offer you something a little different from the usual festive fare. 

We’d also like to welcome our seven new Patreon supporters – your regular donations to our community pantry mean we can keep providing food, a warm space, clothing, toiletries and a friendly welcome to all who need it this month. You can support us with a regular donation or chip in something as a one-off.

We hope to see you very soon! 

Wednesday 7 December, 7.30pm

Hunting Hearts present Yuletide Queer: The Second

Last Christmas, we gave you our hunting hearts… And we’ll do it again this year too. What to expect: levity and an unreasonable amount of stringed instruments (and more, will Devin learn to play sax in time??), good vibes and merryment for all. Probably also mulled wine and minced pies.
