A WHITBY venue which arguably boasts the best view in town is set to burst into life later this month with a series of new events.

The Gallery at Green Lane Centre enjoys spectacular and panoramic views over to Whitby Abbey and out to sea.

The gallery is fast establishing itself as a prime venue for meetings and exhibitions and will host three demonstration evenings in coming weeks.

The first will be a Batik evening, on Thursday, when local artist Heather Gatt will demonstrate this colourful and exciting art form that uses hot wax and dye.

Batik can be used for paintings, greetings cards or as a textile medium, suitable for embroidering, quilting, patchwork and much more.

Following this, on Thursday 17 November, Carol and Shirley from Speciality Cakes will share their knowledge of how to pipe and decorate buns in different mediums.

On Friday 9 December, there will be an opportunity to learn about wine tasting.

Expert Graham Coverdale from House of Townend, the North East wine merchant of the year, will teach visitors how to examine and evaluate wine – from everyday drinking to fine wines.

Business Development Manager Andrew Steel said: “We are delighted that The Gallery will host these three very special and very different events in the coming months.

“Each will offer an experience which is potentially new and exciting for Whitby people.

“They also provide an opportunity to see The Gallery, which offers brilliant facilities – as well as fantastic views – and is now establishing itself as a prime Whitby venue for meetings, exhibitions, seminars and events.”

All events run from 7pm to 8.30pm at The Gallery. Green Lane Centre has its own parking.

Places at all the three events are limited so to book people are asked to call (01947) 602185 or visit www.greenlanecentre.co.uk.
