Chirpy

A contemporary gift shop and gallery space offering quirky gifts, creative workshops, art & locally made products



Chirpy’s aim is to help you find something a little bit different from the run of the mill gifts. We offer stylish and design-led gifts, including jewellery, homeware, childrens wear, prints & stationery and a wide range of greetings cards, where possible made in the UK and often locally in Yorkshire. Upstairs in our gallery space, Chirpy also runs a programme of art & craft workshops, courses and creative parties. The space also hosts a regular Artist in Residence, showing work from local & international artists, whose work can be bought in store.

Whether you’re looking for a gift for someone, for a wedding, birthday, anniversary or thank you, or a treat for yourself, Chirpy offers you a wide choice of stylish & design-led products. With an ever changing stock, there’s always something new to find at Chirpy, regularly introducing new suppliers, often local to Yorkshire, and where possible made in the UK.

The workshop programme is diverse, offering a range of workshops including sewing, ceramics, photography, drawing, printing and calligraphy. The upstairs room can also be hired for private events or parties or we can organise a creative party for specifically for you.
