With delight, avec plaisir, mit Freude, I can announce that the Cherry Kino Lab is now open!!!
At the moment, it's open on the 2nd Friday of every month, from 11am - 6pm. I know this isn't much. But I hope to make it open more often, and it's a start! And if you find yourself in Leeds, please send me an email at: email suppressed and I will do what I can to let you use it!
