Exhibition of Hull Trams This has had to be postponed due to illness.

It will probably take place during the next half term holiday in May.

There will be a working model of a Hull Tram on the Beverley Road route which children can control.

You may not remember the trams that ran on the streets of Hull. why not come along and see a display of photos of 'the old days'.

Model Railway 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.

The Falklands Conflict Exhibition 1st October 2022

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.
