There are two identical 90-minute sessions, starting at 1pm and 3pm

You are welcome to book this cookery workshop with your child (suitable for children over 8 years), but each child under 16 must be accompanied by an adult on a one-to-one basis. Both adult and child must book a ticket.

The workshops are free, but space is limited, so booking is essential.
