Welcome to Open Door!

Open Door is a community and arts space on Berkhamsted high street where you can be active, creative and social, whatever your circumstances.

We offer a wide range of activities, from workshops and exhibitions, to volunteering opportunities and other ways to make a difference. Or you can just come and have a cup of tea and a chat!

Tackling social inequality and isolation is at the heart of what we do as a charity. We enable everyone to connect and contribute, for their own wellbeing and that of the wider community.

Book on to our events here, and check to see the other events coming up at Open Door run by our partners. For gift vouchers, please click the 'vouchers' heading below.

We're looking forward to seeing you soon!

-- Note about payments - our booking system uses PayPal to take payments - you do not need to have or create a PayPal account to make a payment, although sometimes PayPal leads you to think so. If you are struggling to pay, please switch to a desktop instead of a phone where it works better! Thank you --
