Welcome to the

WHAT’S HAPPENING AT THE BECKFORD CENTRE?

Our exhibition at the Centre to mark Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations opens on Saturday 28 May and runs until Saturday 11 June (inclusive). Our exhibition will showcase The Queen’s official visits to the Isle of Wight, and the Centre will be open from 10am until 4pm daily except on regular group session days (currently Monday mornings and all day Thursdays) so none of those sessions will be disrupted. We’re opening on Thursday evenings as well to encourage visitors who might not be able to attend during the daytime. You can help to publicise the exhibition by printing the front page of the June issue of Beckford Bugle and popping it in your window at home!

We’re continuing our monthly coffee and chat mornings from 10am until 12noon on the first Wednesday of each month…so our next open morning will be Wednesday 1 June 2022. We’ll be serving hot drinks and biscuits, with donations to the Centre very welcome. We look forward to welcoming as many of you as possible and you’ll be able to look round our exhibition as well.
