Please find the details of timings and postcode  here


This is the last Pathfinders of the year. We have loved having you all join us on a Friday night throughout the year and we look forward to seeing you all in September. We will work hard over the summer to come up with new and inventive sessions, alongside the classics! Have a good summer.
