Here's what's hot

Concepts of home circulate widely and often predictably. Sophie Sabet's immersive installation takes a more personal and honest approach to understanding how it is that we might contend with 'home' as both place and feeling.

Celebrate the Small Arms Ltd. workers and the local community who supported WWII on the home front! The Small Arms Society (SAS) is hosting a "back to the 40's" event, to celebrate the 14,000 women and men who worked at the Small Arms Ltd. site from 1940-1946.

This summer, enjoy the time-honoured tradition of English Afternoon Tea combined with a tour of the Benares Historic House. With more than 165 years of history, this exquisite Georgian style estate was home to four generations of the Harris and Sayers families.

Grab a blanket and join your friends and neighbours under the night sky for Movie Nights! Celebration Square is a fully-accessible outdoor space that is open to all members of the community. Watch classics, blockbuster hits and family feel-good favourites on the big screens.
