Places to visit

In normal times, EYES has a full programme of visits to exhibitions and shows. We have suspended these activities due to covid, as there are so many complications in organising travel for groups, even over a short distance.

Until it is safe to get back to normal, our team will keep an eye open for events you might like to go to under your own steam:

Hull and East Riding Broderers are holding their exhibition Now we are One-and-Twenty at The Carriage House Gallery at Burton Constable Hall from 20th July till 5th September 2021. Contact Bishop Constable Hall for details and tickets or email herbyembroidery@gmail.com
