Our next creative workshop takes place on May 15th – a chance to explore creative writing and drawing considering issues of mental health with renowned comic poet John Hegley. Please read more and book a ticket.
Friday saw the opening events for the exhibition of Veronica Rowlands. Veronica wanted to involve as many people of all ages, she therefore hosted a fun vintage tea party in the afternoon and a drinks reception in the evening.
