Christmas at The Old Courthouse
Until Christmas, we are turning over our exhibition space to local artists, photographers, crafters, jewellery makers and more.
We have many wonderful items for sale - cards, calendars, photographs, artwork, scented soaps, jewellery, home furnishings and lots of festive goodies!
These make for some wonderful and different gifts and presents for you family and friends.
Buying something at The Old Courthouse means not only will you help to support this fantastic community resource, but also local artisans who spend many hours working on producing special and often unique products.
Pop in today and see what we have on offer!
