    My daughter had a stall there last week. She thought it was brilliant and hopes to repeat next month.

    A lovely arts centre and cafe with a focus on being green. They have interesting exhibitions and events and a monthly flea market as well as lots of craft fairs. They have an accessible toilet too.
