Queens Park Centre is based in a former Edwardian primary school and receives no funding from local government. It is the largest independent arts centre in the United Kingdom.[citation needed] It was established in 1980 and was first directed by Malcolm Thackwray through funding by Buckinghamshire County Council. Eventually the Queens Park Centre built the 120 seat Limelight Theatre. In 1998, the Queens Park Theatre became an independent organisation. The centre hosts workshops and over 70 weekly workshops and sessions throughout the week. [1]
