Always the same,

Junction, Goole’s multi award-winning centre for the arts, opened its doors in November 2009. Junction combines three purposes – the administrative and civic base for Goole Town Council, a community centre and a busy mixed-use arts facility, hosting a wide range of live events, cinema and satellite screenings, a workshop programme and activities that reach out into our community.
Everything we do is intended to inspire and develop the way all of our communities enjoy the arts and our programme of events treads a careful path to balance popular appeal with excellent and more challenging work. Junction was instrumental in the establishment of the Small Venues Network and is involved in many regional and national initiatives all with the single purpose of bringing the best possible arts activity to the town and embedding it into the life of the area.
