27th April — 17th May

Atkins Gallery - Arts Connect

12:00am to 11:59pm at Atkins Gallery, Lower Bond Street.

This exhibition is part of Mental Health Awareness Week 2022 campaign on the theme of loneliness. The exhibition will feature the work of local mental health groups who use creativity to combat loneliness. The exhibition will also feature the centenary celebration of the Argents Mead, War memorial which was formally dedicated in May 1922. The memorial is overseen by a statue of the Angel of Mercy. The statue was positioned so that at the eleventh hour of the eleventh month, the shadow of the angel's outstretched arms falls across the listed names. The War memorial exhibition will also focus on those that came home from the war and the difficulties and loneliness they faced on their return because of their injuries and no longer being able to support their families. Drawing workshops and Mindfulness workshops will also take place throughout the exhibition.


Mental Health Awareness Week 2022 will take place 9 to 15 May.

Atkins Gallery Exhibition - The International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia

at Atkins Gallery, Lower Bond Street.

The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOBIT) movement was created in 2004 to draw the attention to the violence and discrimination experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and all other people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, and sex characteristics. The actual date of May 17 for the campaign was specifically chosen to commemorate the World Health Organization’s decision in 1990 to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder. The exhibition will focus on local aspects of the LGBTQ+ community. The closing day of the exhibition is IDAHOBIT Day.

Hinckley BID's 11th Annual Soap Box Derby 2022

11:00am to 3:00pm at Castle Street.

Soap Box Derby is back, bigger and better for 2022!

Now in it's 11th Year, the annual Hinckley BID Soap Box Derby will make a very welcomed return, on Sunday 26th June 2022.

This is a tremendously fun, family day for the teams and spectators alike. Comprising both a jump or a chicane, it is the driver's choice as they steam down the 200m Castle Street hill cheered on by the crowds.

As with all our Soap Box Derby events since 2010, we utilise the natural hill on Castle Street for individual time trials, with each team being allocated three runs (the slowest of which will not count).

The course will start near the Church Walk/Castle Street junction and end at the bottom of the Castle Street hill in Market Place. At the widest part of the course, the driver will have the option of taking either a short chicane or a jump to test their skill.

Themed Soap Boxes are especially encouraged since they provide the most interest to spectators. Although an entry fee of £25 is required per team, this event is also heavily subsidised by Hinckley BID and the Town Centre Businesses.

There is no charge for spectators, all welcome!
