Gifts to experience

Gift the experience of a workshop to a friend this Christmas. We’ve got sewing workshops in the centre of Knowle from All About the Sew and Glass making workshops from Cheryl Steventon Glass and from Melissa’s Melting Pot.

If sport is more your thing, then why not pick up some tickets to a local cricket match at Knowle Cricket Club or football game at Solihull Moors?

Perhaps a UK short break, or even a trip abroad would be the ultimate gift for someone. Visit Knowle Travel or Journey the World for inspiration on where to book for 2023.
