Please read the 'Events for FRIENDS' page as there is a lot of important information regarding forthcoming events 

The Traveller's Gallery


The Traveller's Gallery on Platform One of Barry Train Station, 

 The Gallery is open  from 7 am till midday and you can have a quiet cup of coffee and even a cake while you contemplate the images before you.

All proceeds from the café go to support MIND in the Vale, so your visits are important.  VOGA helps to support and coordinate these exhibitions and this is an important little outlet for the showing of art and artists and is well worth the time and energy to visit.
