What’s on

Model Boat Exhibition December 2018 – March 2019

Come along and see some wonderful model boats. Our brightly coloured mini-marina has a vessel for everyone.  Come and see the Titanic, two lifeboats, a fire-tender, a sailing yacht and canal barges.

The models have been made by local model-making enthusiasts and kindly lent to the Centre. Many are working models. At other times of the year they can be found sailing around the lake at Mangerton Mill.

We will be holding various events and exhibitions during the year. If you are interested in collaborating with us in putting on an event, please contact us .

Entrance is free, but donations are welcome.

3D Art Workshop with Darrell Wakelam

This year marks the 75th Anniversary of D Day. These Anniversaries make you stop, think and remember. Without them the stories of the great and brave men who were involved could easily be forgotten. In our exhibition we shall tell you about the GI’s time in West Bay from  November 1943 to June 1944 and their landing in France.
