a bit of history

The original Milk Factory was built in 1921 primarily as a depot for local farmers to manufacture dairy products. Over time the factory has had many uses.  Encompassing a floor area of over 90 square metres and with over 7 metre high ceilings this impressive space is ideal for exhibiting large works of art as well as sculpture and installations.
