Special Sunday Opening – Plants, table top sale and music

Join us on a special Sunday opening when volunteers and green fingered friends will be selling plants, staff and volunteers will be running a table top sale and local musicians will be providing some lively music.

The café and galleries will be open 10am to 4pm. Pop in for a coffee and cake, a scone or a tasty toastie and take the chance to view ‘Folk who Shaped Shields’, the exhibition in our heritage gallery that will be closing on 8th  of July to make way for a new exhibition from textile group Northern Threads.

The table top and plant sales will be open from 11am to 4pm, or until everything sells.

Old Low Light volunteer David Ellison who does regular shifts helping in the café, will be playing his guitar and singing, including a range of pop classics, from 12 noon to 1pm.

Wayward Wind, a local peer-led saxophone group, will play from 2pm to 3pm. The group plays a wide variety of tunes from printed music. This includes film music, folk music, and classics from ABBA to Grieg and Gershwin to the Beatles.

Guy Moody, centre director said: “We are so grateful to volunteers and friends of the Old Low Light who give their time any day of the week to allow us to open to the public. But we are delighted to have people helping us to open on a Sunday. Our operational volunteers, musicians, green fingered friends and people donating items to and buying things from our plant and table top sale will help us to raise much needed funds for the heritage centre.”
