I have been at The Howard Venue for just over a year now and it’s been such a lovely experience from a hirer’s perspective and from attending a class there. The staff are always friendly and welcoming and happy to help with requests. It’s a pleasure to be part of their ‘team’ and engage in the local community.

It’s my favourite time of the week when I am teaching there!
