National Saturday club: where creative ideas are sewn, nurtured and harvested. Amazing, unimaginable, creative work and friendships made. For many a real oasis each Saturday.”

Tutor, UCLan

My child has gained so much from Saturday Club. It has been good for her to meet with like-minded people and tutors who have such an enthusiasm for art. It has developed her confidence and has spurred her on to take GCSE Art.


This is an amazing opportunity that’s too good to miss. It’s free, it’s on the doorstep for many of our pupils and will give them a chance to try out a host of new activities.

Creative industries are an essential part of the UK economy and through the Saturday Club, we’re taking the excellent work schools already do and building on it to harness the talents of the next generation.
