Heritage Weekend at the Sidney Sime Gallery
and St Mary's Church

8th to 10th September 2017

Free admission


This year, for Heritage Weekend, we have changed our displays since the recent Lightbox Exhibition. All the items exhibited had been restored or reframed and look wonderful back home in the Gallery at Worplesdon Memorial Hall.

Why not come along and hear one of the talks, visit the Gallery and see Sime's Wave after Hokusai, have a coffee or tea and cake and then head along the road a short walk away to St Mary's church, where Sime is buried, and enjoy a tour and cream tea there!

For children, there will be quizzes available at the Gallery and a church trail available at St Mary's.
