Activities

Encounters creates an action-packed environment that visitors find exciting, relaxed, stimulating and, above all, fun. We will have Artists’ Talks and a book presentation during the four weekends. Check our What’s On section for details.

As usual, the kitchen will be open. In this edition, Morella’s delicious Calabresa food will tantalise your taste buds.

Arty Corner Shop

This year Encounters will have a Corner Shop selling original artwork and other delights. Take a look when you visit.  An opportunity to do some early Christmas shopping! We accept credit cards.

Award Winner

Encounters is delighted to have won many awards. But, more important for us, to have received hundreds of positive comments from our many visitors.
