We’re getting ready for a new exhibition

2019-03-25T16:18:27+00:00 March 25th, 2019|

Our 'Picture this!'  local history exhibition has now closed to make way for the beautiful new art display by members of the renowned RBA - Royal Society of British Artists. We are squirrelling away behind the scenes waving goodbye to the cinema objects and welcoming in the artworks for display. Even though this exhibition space is closed until the RBA opens on 6 April, it will be worth the wait.  So if art is your thing, put the date in your diaries! See our events or exhibitions pages for more details.

Some very important visitors were brought to Hall Place by the famous Taxi Charity for Military Veterans on the 5 November, to mark Remembrance Day, the centenary of the 1918 armistice and to help unveil a new statue and bench.

On arrival they were taken on a guided tour of the Hall Place ‘Faces of the Great War’ and the ‘Code name – Santa Fe’ exhibitions before leaving for the gardens, where they spent some time helping pupil governors from Gravel Hill School to sow poppy seeds.
