Due to popular demand, we have included the below list of current and past events! This list does not show every single event that has occurred at the Centre; only those that have been advertised on our website. This is as some of our events are exclusively advertised within the Centre, on our mailing list, by invitation or the event may have occurred before the launch of this website 01/05/2018. If you would like to request information about any of our past events whether on the list or not please contact us and one of our friendly volunteers will be able to assist.
We have also run some fantastic events at Village Green Festival... read more
