What's on

Our regular events reflect our ethos – of a vision where renewable energy is the norm, wind powered and electric vehicles are a reality and all our food is local and organic.

Summer holidays

31 July – 27 August

We’ve got loads of fantastic activities at the Green Britain Centre throughout the summer holidays!

Each week we’ll be focussing on one of our four main themes – Energy, Transport, Food and Nature.

There’s something for all the family to enjoy, so come along and join in!

31 July – 6 August … ENERGY

In our family workshops we’ll be making wind turbines, and using them to light up bulbs! Our free activities will include rocket mice, paper planes, anemometers and water wheels.

7 August – 13 August … A place for NATURE

Come along and make a bug hotel for your garden in our family workshop, then join in our treasure hunt. We’ll also have free activities such as seed sowing, seed bombs, flower panels, bee activities and a compost sorting game.

14 August – 20 August … TRANSPORT

Get the whole family involved in our workshop to make rubber band powered cars – and once you’ve finished them you can race against each other!

And you can make all sorts of wind-powered transport such as origami sail boats, paper planes and parachutes, and play some transport themed games too.

21 August – 27 August … FOOD

Find out how your kitchen waste can help your veggie garden in our family workshop all about composting – recycling at its finest! Plus we’ve got plenty of hands on food themed activities for you to join in with, including marshmallow constructs and sugar lump pyramids.

We’ll also be showing a film every day in our cinema at 2pm – give us a call on 01760 726 100 to find out which films we’ll be screening.

There will be a small charge of £2 per child for the family workshops, but all of our other activities are free.

We hope to see you soon!


Common Ground film screening with the Marine Conservation Society

Wednesday 9 August

We're screening a fascinating documentary featuring local community voices and their views about use and conservation of our shared seas.

The film was made as part of the Common Ground community engagement project run by the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) in partnership with the Eastern Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (EIFCA).

The film is 30 minutes long and will be followed by a short presentation by Dr Peter Richardson and Susan Ranger of MCS, with a Q&A session about the project and its outcomes.

There’s something for everyone – children’s entertainment, a plant sale, an arts and crafts market, live music, apple demonstrations and much more!

We hope to see you soon!
