We've set the dates for 2016: The Cre8 Festival will be 11th to the 17th of June. Get it in your diaries now!
The 2015 Cre8 Festival was absolutely brilliant - so we've gone and set the date for next year! The 2016 Cre8 Festival will be the 11th to the 17th of June and will be a week packed full of events and activities for everyone; from young people who come to Cre8 on a regular basis, to people from around Macc who've never heard of us before - everyone is welcome.
And for 2016 we've decided on a theme - True light. See the sunshine, feel the warmth, celebrate everything that brings light in Faith, Change and Community.
The Festival week is always full of laughter, food, fun and quite a bit of work. If you'd like to be involved somehow - creating huge works of art, making brews or donating something for a tombola - just get in touch (click here to find our contact details) - we'd love to hear from you.

See you there if not before!
After 4 years of gradual renovations at The Building we are delighted to finally announce that we are connected to the electricity grid! We have been getting by with a second-hand diesel generator for the last 2 and a half years - and have run Lunch Clubs, Community Events, Holiday activities, Youth Clubs, and of course the successful Music Project and Bike Project are based here - but it's all been rather difficult running off a generator with the 30 year old wiring system in place.
Electricity North West flipped the switch on 15th June and we now have a stable and reliable electricity connection, and seven modern electric heaters to supplement the cosy wood burning stoves over the winter. Just in time for the Festival!
The Music Studio can now run without the distant rattle of the generator, and we don't have to make emergency trips out to get diesel fuel, or to flip switches on the generator when it breaks down! Hallelujah...!
We are incredibly grateful to a particular individual who donated a significant sum of money for this particular project - without which we would not even have been able to consider the project.
Rob and the RD team took a hand in the digging and prep work for the cable trench.
All in all, we are very pleased to be in the modern electrical era at the Building - thanks to all involved!
