Mary Portas dropped in on open studios at Cockpit Arts this weekend. She had this to say about her visit:
"I like shopping this way. It feels like a wonderful, spirited, creative environment. We are at the heart of great talent and community spirit - I think that’s very British. For me this is somewhere I would like to drag 25 pals back to. Actually when is your next Open Day? "
