The latest of many visits to this venue. Always interesting exhibitions and lots to buy. The café is good for lunch too: wholesome, tasty food at reasonable prices.

“Reasonable cafe and a fair bit to see.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013

Not too arty. A number of arts and also crafts at work in the place, regular changes of exhibitions and friendly staff. Nothing spectacular but easygoing and worth looking in. Get on the mailing list of check things out by looking in. All very convenient.

“A special place for art lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2013

Working artists and designers have on-site studios as well as displays of crafts, paintings and other work. The café is a good meeting place and is on the first floor overlooking the gallery where items are beautifully displayed for sale in this refurbished former brewery.

“Superb facility for creative kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2012

This review of the many workshops available during the year, particularly in school holidays, for kids and families. We recommend these very highly. Whether it,s clay modelling, hand printing, candle-making or most recently making lanterns for the Cirencester lantern Christmas parade, the artists involved are very engaging and pitch the right level of challenge. An example of an arts and crafts facility at its best.
