Responding to the Coronavirus Outbreak

These are worrying times and our thoughts are with everyone who been affected by the COVID 19 pandemic.


We have been looking out for our community’s welfare and offering a free-entry oasis of art and creativity for almost six years. We have faced challenges along the way but this one is the biggest. We are committed to keeping people at the centre of everything we do. You have helped us to weather many storms (literally and metaphorically) and we hope in turn that we have been there for you in some small way and that this will continue for many years to come.


We are taking precautions in response to the outbreak. Our number one priority is the health and well-being of customers, staff, supporters & volunteers. 


Opening Hours

We will have an update mid-July
to let you know how we plan to safely re-open.

We are sorry but we are unable to take any further Foodbank donations or to offer photocopying support at this time.

Accessing Activities and Exhibitions Online

We are working on ways to share our exhibitions and work with you online- see HERE.
