However we have moved studio space to the new Electric Picture House artists co-operative on Cross Street, Congleton. This is very much work in progress at the moment! It is an interesting old building that was originally a Cinema, known at the time as an Electric Picture Theatre, although none of the interior remains. We are aiming for an official launch in December but visitors can see what we are upto on the 24 & 25th.

we have moved into one of the first floor spaces, a new staircase and the rest of the first floor to be completed soon!
