This week our new What's On programmes arrived! Look out for that bright red cover at Reception and around town - we've displayed our ten year anniversary logo loud and proud on the front of this one. Inside you'll find it's jam-packed with exciting new events and projects taking place between April and September this year, as well as some brilliant new exhibitions, and a bigger workshop offering than ever. Here's a few of our highlights to whet your appetite...
