You will need to bring a packed lunch with you for the full day workshops . Alternatively there is a pizzeria opposite or a pub close by with good food. 2. Unfortunately, due to the ‘medieval nature’ of the Centre’s building there are no toilet facilities, however, there are some public toilets approximately 50 metres walking distance away, for 40pence a go. 3.The building is unfortunately not suitable for all disabled access. There is a path leading to the building and no step into the front. For workshops including Calligraphy, Printmaking, Egg Tempera, Illumination and Wheat Weaving, access is via wooden stairs to the upper level, which some people may find a little steep, although considered safe. 4. So that you have a medieval experience, the seating in the upper level is on wooden benches and you may like to bring a cushion. 5. There is a pay and display car park at the Quay, very near the Centre building. CANCELLATIONS are made on individual consideration but generally only if someone can be found to take your place. 2.
