Discover Patchings through the year…

Looking towards opening again. . .

As we continue to work and prepare for re-opening, we are sorry to say it won’t be just yet. Our concern is to ensure everything is in place for a safe return of our team and of course you, our visitors and supporters.

Currently we are working towards Saturday 8 August, which incidentally is the 32nd anniversary weekend of the actual opening of Patchings in 1988 – some would say an appropriate coincidence. Do keep an eye on our website and monthly Newsletter for further information.
Meanwhile we look forward to seeing you soon.
