We generally have many exhibitions throughout the year both by amateur and professional alike and we are always pleased to hear from groups or individuals who would like to consider the space for future exhibitions.

    We have two craft rooms, which our local community arts and crafts groups use on a weekly basis. The groups currently include pottery, photography, poetry, knitting, patchwork. The larger of the two rooms has a kiln for pottery and a potter’s wheel. The smaller of the two rooms is an ideal space for meetings.
