The opening times are:
Friday 28th April 6 pm – 9 pm
Saturday 29th April 10 am – 6 pm
Sunday 30th April 10 am – 5 pm.

Friday night is a preview evening costing £9 plus booking fee but you get live music and a glass of fizz on arrival.

The Saturday and Sunday will cost just £3 per adult with children under 15 going free.
