*A Message from Settle Stories*

Due to the current pandemic, all dates booked at The Joinery are now cancelled. Please email Daisy ( for more information on how you can still get involved with Deco Publique.


Are you looking for something to do with your free-time and a place to meet friends and go to events? Maybe you are you wanting to learn new skills and hear from young creatives who’ve made a go of it? Do you have questions about starting a creative enterprise or using your skills for profit?

Welcome to The FOLD.

Creative producers Deco Publique are working with Settle Stories @ The Joinery to create this new project.

For 3 weeks in March 2020 we’re putting on workshops, live music sessions, talks, films and more in a pop-up programme that involves everything from Music and Making to Design and Debating.


16-21? You are invited to be part of this exciting cultural venture in Settle. We are looking to form a steering group to work on the project ahead of March 2020. This group will help to design the space, programme the content and promote The FOLD. You’ll receive mentorship from Deco Publique and experienced artists. Join us on the 31st Jan @6-8pm for the next meetup. Want to know more?
