What Happens at the Ideas Hub?

Got Ideas? Need Space? The Ideas Hub provides the space for people wanting to make things happen.

The Ideas Hub encourages creative participation,  community building and a vision for a green and thriving future, It is also a venue for community groups, charities and clubs to get together. One day you can learn to play the guitar or attend a mindfulness class and on another be playing the didgeridoo with a group of others, creating a mosaic or developing your interview skills. Some people dance while others talk movies or play board games.

If you want to get inspired, collaborate, or learn new skills, why not drop in for a cuppa and meet us. Together, we can do great things. Come in, be yourself, be brilliant!




The Ideas Hub was one of only three locations in the UK participating in the Global GovJam. The event brought together public sector professionals and members of the public to redesign better public services. The GovJamSX event ran at the Hub on the 10th and 11th of June, and small teams met to prototype innovative approaches to challenges faced by the public sector. The event was open to anyone who wanted to share ideas and perspectives, and everyone shared ideas and learned more about how the world works.


Get Involved…

The Ideas Hub is what we the community make it. Since we launched on the 22nd of September 2012, the hub has been the venue for more than 700 creative and community events, workshops and meet ups.  We also support local start-ups and groups to grow their enterprises or community projects, by providing flexible, affordable event and workshops spaces, as well as a co-working facility and meeting space.

Getting involved in community activities is a great way to get to know your fellow Chelmsfordians, develop new skills and give something back.  And make no mistake, it takes a lot of time and commitment to keep the Ideas Hub running, so we are always looking for volunteers for tasks ranging from hosting, design, social marketing, admin and more.
