Throughout the year the Pavilion plays host to a diverse range of activities and events which reflect our values.


We offer live music from punk, reggae, motown and folk, as well as regular DJ sets. There is something for everyone.


Over Summer and Winter we have a wide range of activities inside the Pavilion or on our lawn - family fun days, fairs and creative workshops. 


Drop in on a Wednesday to Sunday, to enjoy our cafe and artspace, for some time out and to look at our current gallery exhibition.
