Having lost our usual demo weekend at Hanbury Hall, Robert Shephard organised this new venue for the club to demonstrate, promote the club and woodturning and allow members to sell some of their turnings.
Members where warmly welcomed by staff at the Castle, the location and room allotted was ideal for us if not as big as Hanbury Hall and they did promote our club & the demonstration on their website.

As a first visit to this venue the number of visitors was not as high as we are used too. However it was Fathers day weekend and the weather was not good either so sales where disappointing, but we have been offered the opportunity to have more days and as with Hanbury after people found out about us the footfall increased and we had repeat followers.
Members had the opportunity to have a look round the castle & found it very interesting, a great place for a future visit, its recommended that 3 hours are required so bring the family along for a day out. Post code is DY11 7XZ
