Special Exhibition: Horse and the Landscape

Daniel Byrne

Current exhibition

Special exhibition: Lymington River – From the source to the Solent (and quite a few places in between)

Sat 22 Mar to Sun 27 Apr    10am - 4.30pm daily

At the outset, artist Pete Gilbert and photographer Hugh Lohan gave themselves six months to walk from the source of Lymington River to the Solent. Nearly two and a half years later they finished: “I think it was the places in between that took the time!” says Pete.

Free entry to exhibition

Draw a bird dayFamily Discovery Days: Springtime Forest

Alongside these activities will be some Easter crafts too so why not join in the fun at The New Forest Centre.

Keep Smiling Through - a performance by Forest Forge Theatre Company

Mon 14 Apr

As bombs fall on coastal cities in World War Two, children are uprooted from their parents’ homes and spirited away to the relative safety of the countryside. For some it is a time of adventure and new found friendships but for others it is a dark time of cruelty and homesickness.
