Just a short time before we hit 2017.

We are all ready for the Christmas holidays with two days of festive themed craft activities to keep your children and grandchildren busy on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 December.

If you want to make a Resolution (Or have already failed in your over-ambitious good intentions!)why not promise yourself a trip over to see us and while away an hour in our latest selection of displays?

The Photographic Alliance of Great Britain exhibition runs throughout the holidays and from Saturday 14 January you can see the amazingly lifelike paper people created by local artist Philip Cox.
