All the fun of the fair but without the cost! Come along and bring your children to see the rides in miniature.
Photos from last years Exhibition.
This exhibition was a great success and we would like to thank all the exhibitors who made it possible as well as our volunteers who were on duty. Steve Manners exhibit was enjoyed by all the children who came along as they able to take charge of the rolling stock. We will be doing this again next year so look out for the adverts.
This took place on the last Saturday of Hull Fair, 15th October, 2022 and showed many models of fairground rides, some working some stationary, a wonderful display for adults and children alike. Look out for this exhibition this year, usually the final Saturday of Hull Fair.
This Exhibition about the Falklands war from a local perspective included local service men & women who were involved in this conflict. Unfortunately, it was not very well attended due to the centre being surrounded by Hull Fair and there fore not much parking space available.The Organiser, Sheila Coates, was looking for local stories and pictures who remembered the event and she did get a few.
All the information we have will be catalogued and archived so people can come into the centre and look at it for years to come.
This photo shows the family of the entertainer, Wendy Gibson, who kept up the moral of the troops on the Norland Ferry which had been conscripted to carry troops to the Falklands.
Our volunteers organised a Road Haulage Exhibition on Saturday 24th and Sunday 26th June, 2022 and as well as photographs and information on local transport firms we had vintage and modern lorries on display in West Park on the Sunday. As it was such a success we will be making this an annual event so look out for the date for 2023.
