Brilliant response leads to reprieve!
Wonderful news for Christmas, we can stay in our fabulous location for the time being, maybe till the summer. High Chelmer management responds to the many messages of support and joins in the quest to establish a sustainable and secure future for the Ideas Hub.
High Chelmer Shopping Centre boss Mick McDonagh said: “High Chelmer is said to be the heart of the community in which she resides and the people she serves. If that is the case, then the Ideas Hub is the soul”. So if you’re looking for an inspiring New Year resolution, why not participate in growing our thriving and vibrant creative community by contributing to the Ideas Hub!

Ideas Festival 2014 was a great success
The Ideas Festival is over for another year, and it’s been brilliant and hectic. From Improv theatre, to social currencies, Community Land Trusts, Broadcasting Now! to Natural Play and Claymation, the hub has been the venue for a whole range of fun and/or change maker events. Have a look at the great images by Jayne Lloyd showing some of the highlights of the Festival.
All being well and we find premises, we will be looking for more volunteers!
The Ideas Hub is friendly pop up space in central Chelmsford for community, creativity and green enterprise. We offer local start-ups and groups the opportunity to grow their enterprises or community endeavours, by providing flexible event and workshops spaces, as well as a co-working facility with meeting space.
Getting involved in grass-roots activities is a great way to get to know your fellow Chelmsfordians, make new friends and give something back to your local community. See our current opportunities here.
