• Conor supports local arts and culture venture

    Arts cafeConor McGinn stopped by the Pop up Café Hunt and Darton for a bite to eat and to enjoy entertainment from the artists. Whilst there he met Holly Darton and Jenny Hunt, who run the café.

    The café has come to St Helens as part of the Heart of Glass project and mixes food with performance art, an eclectic mix of poetry and dance.  

    Conor was joined for lunch by Patrick Fox the director of the Heart of Glass project. Heart of Glass is an arts commissioning project which supports work made with, for and about St Helens. The initiative aims to get more people involved in the arts.  Commenting after the visit Patrick said “It’s really fantastic that Conor popped by to see us, showing support and recognising the transformative power of arts and creativity across our communities”

    Conor added:

    “It was an interesting and entertaining lunch today, and just one of the many projects being delivered through the Heart of Glass.

    “Projects like this are important to help increase participation in the arts and support existing local artists in their work.”
