Introducing SALA Hub, the centre of the 2022 SALA Festival!

SALA Hub at Queens Theatre is a place where artists and audiences can come and sharpen skills, try something different or simply kick back in the Queens new arts and live music bar. The SALA Hub program has been designed for artists and art lovers – at all levels of experience. The Hub program includes Slide Night, workshops, masterclasses and marathons! It will also be the home of our 25th Anniversary exhibition, SILVER.
