Porsches at Picton
The South Wales Porsche Club will be visiting on 21st July and will be parked on our castle forecourt.
We have re-named our “Small Gallery”, situated next to the shop, the “Studio Gallery”.
We feel this new title better evokes its light, airy space, plus giving a nod to its former use at an artist studio.
Studio Gallery Artists: Gill Farrington during August and Judy Maynard during September
Ray Burnell is in the Courtyard gallery until end September
