Alison, Lisa, Julia and Heather having fun on the toadstools!
So Sunday was the launch of one of our most exciting exhibitions in 6 years, May All Your Dreams Come True, inspired by fairytales and folklore. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves dressing up as characters from Alice in Wonderland, eating mini fairy cakes made for us by Truly Scrumptious, listening to magical stories in the garden told by nationally acclaimed storyteller Ursula Holden Gill and chatting to customers about the amazing work we are currently showcasing. Here is a little glimpse at our day:
