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
Tue 8 & Thu 10 Apr & Tue 15 & Thu 17 Apr 10am-4pm
Themed trails, quizzes and craft activities for all the family. For this year's Springtime Forest each of our Discovery Days will take a closer look at one of these topics: birds, colours, rivers and bees.
Crafts will include creating your own bird on Draw a Bird Day (Tue 8 April), using collage to explore the spring colours, making your own dragon fly and creating a flying bee.
Alongside these activities will be some Easter crafts too so why not join in the fun at The New Forest Centre.
Booking not required, just turn up. Suitable for all ages
Standard museum entry.
BATTLE LINES BY DAVID HAWORTH:
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.
