    • Hi Lisa,

      We’re open on Saturdays 10am-2pm, and on Friday nights if there’s a gig on. At the moment this works out roughly fortnightly on a Saturday, but subject to volunteer availability we’re hoping to be open every Saturday. Check our calendar on the what’s on page for times and dates.
