Businesses Behind the Scenes

Take a peek behind the scenes as some of our businesses open the doors and show you how they work. Small or large, they have volunteered to welcome visitors and share their know-how, so you can learn from the experts first-hand.

We are lucky enough to have volunteer businesses in every field, from printing to foodstuffs to ancient textiles, all waiting for you to knock on their door...
