Spring seems to be late so we are looking forward to opening up for the Summer and the Castlegate Festival with a bout ot sprucing up and cleaning. As a result, the galleries will be closed for the first two weeks of June. Any evening events and one offs such as The Poetry Cafe will continue as normal and feel free to make appointments but if you pop down on spec we will be closed and there will be nothing to see – other than lost of busy people cleaning and painting the walls, floors and anything that doesn’t move.
