Outpost – Shop. Arts. Community Hub
Open six days a week, we provide a contemporary selection of homewares, gifts, books, well being, jewellery and toys, all thoughtfully sourced from a mix of fellow social enterprises, ethical, local or independent suppliers.
These include original artwork sold straight from our Gallery space, as well as handmade products from makers on PBHA’s Supporting Makers and Creative Industries programmes.
Shopping at Outpost supports local people to achieve greater independence and employment. And often supports like-minded organisations too.
