We are opening the Old Basket Centre on the entrance to Westover Trading Estate in Langport as a bakery and canteen from early May. It is a really light and airy building with lots of wall space and quite a bit of grass outside adjacent to the river. We think it will make a lovely venue.

I am looking for a space to show some of my glass panels during Somerset Art Weeks. I have both free-standing and wall-mounted works available. Ideally, the space needs to be fairly well lit and I am available to travel to any venue anywhere in the South Somerset area.
I am happy to help out with expenses, setting up, stewarding and anything else that needs doing. I can provide my own plinths and, if necessary, lighting.
