The Weston is now open at Yorkshire Sculpture Park

We are thrilled to announce this new visitor centre, gallery and restaurant is now open to the public at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. We have enjoyed a wonderful week of opening activities and press, including write ups in the AJ, Wallpaper*, the Guardian, Dezeen and BD. Thank you to all who have helped this inspiring project come to life!

Construction at Carlisle Cathedral has begun

We’ve had an exciting start on the Fratry project in Carlisle. Medieval Cathedrals turn out lots of surprises when excavation takes place! It’s been wonderful to strip back this historic interior to its former glory and see the whole space as one. More on the project in the recent AJ write up here.

Big-league breakthrough

Nice to have formally ’emerged’ in the AJ’s round up of the year, and we are pleased to be on their ‘People to watch in 2019’ write up. It’s been an intense past few years but great to see some of the results of the hard work coming through. Full article here.

Waterloo Farm Christmas Fayre

What a wonderful festive event to kickstart the holiday season at Waterloo City Farm. Well done to Jamie’s Farm and Oasis Waterloo for a fantastic day filled with food, drink, activities and crafting! A special thank you to all the volunteers who helped make this happen. And we very much enjoyed our garden room being converted to Santa’s Grotto!
