Always interesting exhibitions. Today dropped into find an exhibition of original Captain Pugwash illustrations, and then around into the next space to find a Grayson Perry tapestry. Unexpected and marvellous.

Great exhibition of "captain pug wash" illustrations. They also have one of Grason Perry's amazing tapestries, an absolute must see.

A small gallery, but some lovely art on display. On two levels, and spreads into the town hall. Well worth a quick visit.
