NEOS 2020

We regret that due to covid19 North East Open Studios (NEOS) at the Sand Bothy has been cancelled.  It was a difficult decision, but we had to weigh up all the issues involved, with our main concern the safety of our volunteers, exhibitors and visitors.

However our exhibitors would still love to hear from you.
