Ultimate Girls Night Out

Every 3rd Thursday from May to October


Our art studio loves this event. Each UGNO has a theme that visitors can participate in.  

The theme for May is Flowers. As the saying goes... "April Showers brings May Flowers". 

We have raffle prizes, delicious food samples, and live music.

Each event will feature opportunities to create a work of art or produce a special craft item to bring home.

Don't forget to visit the art gallery. You might just walk home with a piece created by the world famous artist Kate Sullivan.
