Great exhibits in vast, stunning industrial space. The area so needs places like this and yet poorly advertised. Outside needs to match high standards of inside with suitable signs/banners/ flags to alert public. Exciting development.

A really unusual space above the wine cooperative. Some great art and seriously worth visiting regularly as there seems to be a good and regular change of the exhibits.
