Upcoming Exhibitions

  • July-August - Manor Royal and Crawley's Industrial past in conjunction with the Manor Royal Business District team. The aim is to create a permanent record of Manor Royal, hoe it has evolved and changed, and to capture some of the stories of the people who worked there. This information will then be used to inform a physical trail around Manor Royal that will help interpret the place as well as creating more spaces for people to sit and rest
  • September-October - Diverse Crawley- themes to be confirmed, but this is now fixed as an annual event. October remains as Black History Month which for many years has been an important element in the town's life. There is also a rich European element in Crawley culture which deserves attention.
  • November-December - Winter Festivals. A look at the different cultural approaches to winter celebrations.
