To coincide with the forthcoming exhibition ‘The Land We Live In – The Land We Left Behind’ we will be hosting a series of free talks and performances every Thursday evening. Taking the exhibition as a starting point to explore themes relating to the rural, each week a different artist, writer, gardener, land-worker, academic or performer will join us.
