Closed for a short break - reopening on Tuesday 19th Feb

We will be closed from Thursday 24th January and will re-open on Tuesday 19th February. 

We have had a little family break planned for Feb, but have unexpectedly had an illness in the family and have had to close the gallery to help out. (Don't worry everything is ok).

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding. 

We look forward to seeing you on our return. 
Kind regards, Em and John
