Some of you may know that we have secured a spot with the Lovely Sonny Playforth Hairdressing on South parade in Northallerton – number 87 to be exact!

This is the spot where we are planning to create The Velveteen Rabbit Secret Garden, Coffee House & Kitchens. Although we’ve been talking about this since the pandemic hit, it’s only now that its actually taking shape!

Sonny will be opening his hair academy in the front property, our chunk is being built for us in the courtyard to the rear.

We’ve been waiting with baited breath for the building to take shape. Finally, the steel structure of the building has arrived and has been added to our concrete base over the past two weeks. Work is under way to add walls and the glass panels – we promise to keep you in the loop! The best way to ensure you don’t miss a beat is to follow us on Instagram, Facebook or sign up to our newsletter!

We can’t wait to welcome you all to the secret garden (which is south facing and completely sheltered, so its always oddly warm) for some great coffee, tasty treats and lovely service.

A big shout out to Sonny and Nigel for believing in us!
