The Old Village Hall,

Details

Machinations has something for everyone, a play barn to bounce off energy, a rabbit village where you can feed and stroke the animals and the model museum where you can turn handles, push buttons and watch everything work.

There is a café with a full and varied menu of drinks and homemade meals. We run model making workshops and parties by arrangement but there is always a painting and modelling table set up for creative work in the café.
