Creative Week with Saltmine


Saltmine Theatre Company will be leading a fun and exciting programme of drama this week, including complementing Rachel Orrell's evening talks with their superb short sketches. Saltmine’s skilled team will be sharing performance and drama techniques in their relaxed workshops throughout the week.

Join the evening celebrations with the team bringing the Bible to life in a way that only they can: with drama and interactive activities for all. Finish off your break with a night to remember, as Saltmine take to the stage to do what they do best.

Art workshops

Artist and teacher Lynne Pugh will join us for a week of free watercolour workshops to further encourage your artistic endeavours. Sit on the terrace in the sun and learn a new skill as Lynne guides you through the basics of watercolour. The workshops are for all abilities, whether you are a skilled watercolourist or just curious to try it out.


Bring along your camera or phone and learn what makes a fantastic photo and how to capture the shot of your dreams with Chez, our professional photographer.
