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.

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.

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.
