Screenings and Sculpture


The Grotto will be opening on Friday 15 November, for a one-off afternoon of screenings and sculpture by film maker Hugh Stoddart and artist Paul Hazelton. Hugh will be screening two short films in the Altar Room: Moth Dust – which features Paul’s sculptures – and Lifetime. We will be open from 12.30pm to 6pm, with screenings in the Altar Room every 30 minutes from 1pm. Entry will be by donation. More information on Paul’s work here, and on Hugh’s work here.
