Art, Culture, Food.

Thurs, 2nd Feb – 6pm – Primary Lates – Primary

A lot of people don’t seem to know about this venue – we think they should! Especially because it’s less than a 5 minutes’ walk from Canning Circus. Primary will be opening up its doors to give you a chance to see 4 projects and exhibitions.

PLUS… Small Food Bakery which is housed in the same venue will be giving you the chance to try out your baking skills. How does sourdough calzone and rhubarb fool with fresh fried spiced doughnuts sound? AND you get a pot of sourdough dough to take home with you!
