Free Summer Holiday Activities at the Spring Arts and Heritage Centre

Published: 11th July 2018 18:41

The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre in Havant will be running free drop-in activities and exhibition for families throughout the summer holidays.

The activities will be in The Spring’s Upper Mezzanine gallery from Monday 16 July – Friday 31 August.  Young people can travel through our interactive exhibition, completing activities and learning facts about the history of Havant Borough in order to become a “Havant Historian”. 

The activities in the exhibition are based on key points in the borough’s timeline, from exploring the history of Havant’s natural springs and the old Homewell Parchment Works through to celebrating the success of Scalextric and its Havant-based production factory. Young people will be able to take part in activities including racing Scalextric cars, building a Roman road and marking their house on our wall-sized map of the borough. Throughout the holidays, The Spring’s café will also be open and serving a number of summertime specials alongside their standard menu.

Faith Davies, Participation Officer, said, “The Spring is delighted to be able to provide these free activities for families this summer. It is really important to us that everyone in our local community is able to engage with arts and culture. We hope that young people and their families will join us this summer to have fun and learn about the history of our town.”

The exhibition is free to enter and families are welcome to return as often as they would like to throughout the duration of the exhibition. 

The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre is supported by Arts Council England, Havant Borough Council and Hampshire County Council.
