For everyone joining us with anticipation of the construction works coming to an end this April! We have now been informed that further work will take place to tidy and repaint the exterior adding a further 3 months on to the completion date!  As much as we are disappointed at this news, we soldier on with activity, creative and social events happening and showing great art to our community! We look forward to your visit with us.

As a quirky take on the exterior mess, local artist Laura Schiessel has created sculptures that turn the outside chaos into works of beauty! Do come down and see these marvelous works on our outdoor plinths.

We also have acquired a wonderful collection of art books for a library corner, on your visit please enjoy a good read in our comfy exhibition and library space.
