We 'gate crashed' a private view which was taking place in the downstairs gallery and had a marvellous visit to the shop. Wish we'd had more time (and money). Thank you for letting us in.

Visited last night to watch Micheal Moores latest, Where to invade next. Lovely experience. Building is gorgeous and staff very friendly. Great place to go, especially if this good weather changes.
