Our kitchen was designed by Claire Potter, an interior architect and award-winning designer who specialises in sustainable design to ensure we reduce our environmental impact. The kitchen includes a balance of quality, new kitchen equipment alongside recycled and reused materials. The design prioritises accessibility and flexibility – from specialist accessible cookery equipment to adaptable areas for dining and food preparation.

Typically 12-20 participants cooking, depending on the activity. We can accommodate up to 40 people standing.

Our capacity is now reduced due to Covid-19 safety measures but exact figures depend on the type of activity and how many households are attending the event. Please contact us to discuss.
