The Holy Biscuit
The Holy Biscuit was formed in 2010 with a vision to develop a creative hub that would enrich the cultural and social landscape of Shieldfield and Newcastle.
Motivated by the rich history of the Methodist Church in the North East, The Holy Biscuit continues in this heritage of social involvement by programming exhibitions, events and workshops that investigate purpose, belonging and belief and their relationship with artistic practice. We also support artists and creative groups to promote their work through the provision of exhibition spaces.
The Holy Biscuit works with schools and universities, charities, churches, community groups, artistic collectives and other partners to deliver our vision and promote social cohesion through creative projects. We welcome collaborations with like-minded organisations or individuals.
During exhibitions we are open Tues - Sat 11am - 4pm. Please check our website for more details http://www.theholybiscuit.org/whats-on/
