Join us to see the Museum transformed once more into a twilight artisan market offering the best locally hand made products direct from the maker.

With live music, there will be the opportunity to browse quality products with a glass of wine in hand, and chat directly with the people who made them.

Hand Made Under the Stars is the ultimate twilight shopping experience with unique gifts from more than 50 selected local artisans – the perfect opportunity to get your Christmas shopping done early.

There will also be delicious food and drinks available to purchase as well as tastings on offer in our gourmet tasting area.

Entry is FREE. All weather venue.
