Parent review:

⭐️ "I often take my children to the craft events here during the school holidays. Excellent value for money. Lovely helpful staff who are genuinely interested in what the children are making and offer words of encouragement. I love the fact that children are encouraged to use the gallery and use it for fun activities so they don't think it's boring! My children ask every holiday if we can go to the gallery. Hope we can continue to visit for years to come!"⭐️
