Grand Reopening Gala

Join us in celebrating the wonderful restoration of the Waterways and Boating Lake on Tuesday 20th August.

The Island Cafe and Boating Lake will be open from 2pm, where you will be able to enjoy a trip out onto the lake in one of the rowing boats or pedalos.

There will be a variety of fun activities available for you to enjoy including music, demonstrations, dance acts, Punch and Judy shows, arts and crafts and heritage walks.

Activities and entertainment are subject to change and availability.

Restoration of the Boat Figureheads

We are really excited that three of the original boat figureheads, dating back to the 1950s, have been moved to Skippings Gallery for vital restoration work.

The working being undertaken is of a delicate nature due to the condition and age of the wood. Once restored the figureheads will be placed throughout the Waterways for all to enjoy.
