Fairkytes Arts Centre
Opposite Sainsbury's and the Queen's Theatre in Billet Lane, Hornchurch, you may have noticed a rather elegant Georgian house. Built in the mid eighteenth century, Fairkytes has been occupied by several distinguished people, including Joseph Fry, son of the famous prison reformer Elizabeth Fry. In the 1950's it was bought by Hornchurch Urban District Council and became the Fairkytes Arts Centre in 1973. It is now a venue for many different groups, classes and courses for all ages, ranging from Bollywood dancing, art classes and music tuition to mention just a few. During the school holidays there are also various courses and activities for children, and the Saturday Arts Scheme runs every Saturday during school term time. So Fairkytes really does have something for everyone - why not drop in and see what there is to interest you?
