Sorry, we're closed

Despite our best efforts over the last few weeks to avoid any disruptions to services we’ve had to take the difficult decision to temporarily close Cornerstone Arts Centre and the Nourish café as we need to carry out urgent maintenance work that affects the heating of the building.

January and February are traditionally quiet times for the centre, and we’re hoping to find alternative venues or dates for the events coming up, to keep disruption to a minimum.

We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience and any disappointment following this news, but given the cold weather we’re having, it’s very important to us to make sure we’re looking after the health and well-being of our visitors and staff.

Featuring puppetry, Makaton and gentle audience interaction, Swish is a playful multisensory exploration of life underwater and the positive ways we can reduce plastic in the ocean.
