We came to see Hank Wangford and the Lost Cowboys close out the Hat Festival Weekend and were not disappointed. Really good venue with a great range of live music and films.

Visited here last evening. It is described as are deco but I think think it is slightly more quirky than that. Certainly old fashioned. Film Loving very good. Followed by a speaker a lawyer who was a little too verbose for me.
