The Summer Sessions program embraces our post-lockdown freedoms while supporting a COVID-safe re-opening. All events are outdoors, bringing our community together, and driving foot-traffic to outdoor areas while supporting our local traders.

These are small pop-up events to bring the community together across the three locations. See full list here
