Further to our announcement in March we can now confirm that the Brewery’s ‘interval’ will be lasting a bit longer than first envisaged and we’ve taken the decision to remain closed until at least 1st June 2020.
For those of you that have purchased tickets for events or courses up to 30th May you will have a member of our Box Office team contacting you over the coming days. We aim to reschedule as many events and classes as possible and if you cannot make the new date, we are happy to offer you a refund, a 12-month credit, or the opportunity to make a donation that will help keep our charitable work thriving while our doors are closed.
We would like to say a big THANK YOU for the kind words you’ve sent to us during this time, and the support you are giving to our fabulous communities across Kendal and the County – it means so much. We miss seeing all of you in our venue but we’re delighted to report that our team are still working to help keep our communities inspired and connected.
We’ve been trialling new online versions of our Creative Learning classes and, due to their success, we’ll be announcing more activities in the coming weeks for people of all ages to enjoy everyday creativity, connection and participation at home.
Here’s a lovely comment we received last week about the art classes we are continuing to provide for the home education community –
‘I’ve been intending to write to the brewery for the past few days as, over the past couple of weeks it has really struck me what an important place it has become for the children and parents of the home ed community, with many of us attending around 3 sessions a week it has, for a while now, become a hub, or, for the children, a classroom, and it’s one that they all love!
It is providing a place for them to learn from supportive and fun tutors, to make and strengthen friendships, a support for parents, and I know I speak for many when I say THANK YOU for that, also for the excellent programming, generosity and patience of all the staff at the Brewery for opening its doors to these (sometimes slightly bonkers!) children. Thank you for continuing to provide resources and communication…’
Thank you for your love and support, we will be back soon to entertain you!
In the meantime, please keep in touch via our socials.
All our best wishes,
The Brewery Team
