I visited as part of an art society and we had a really good experience. The staff were friendly and informative. The little cafe served delicious cake and hot drinks. We also enjoyed sketching the old mine workings.

A group of four of us visited to watch I Daniel Blake. We really enjoyed the film in unusual surrounding. The bonus was that we could buy a glass of wine to enjoy while we were watching the film. We will be back

We went to watch an evening of entertainment with a Cumbrian theme. The staff are friendly and there is some excellent art work on display. We will certainly keep a look out for more events at this venue.
