January – April 2017


welcome We know that the Maltings means many different things to different people. To some it will always be the place that generations of children have learnt tap and ballet. For others it is the annual Beerex festival or coming to the growing theatre programme, or the monthly market, or giving blood, or cinema and the New York Met. And that’s before we describe the workshops in making and singing and learning to play the ukulele. That’s why we try and list everything that happens here without emphasis – in the hope you might stumble across something you hadn’t considered going to. We delight in our range of programme but it presents a challenge in explaining to people new to the town all that we are. What would be great is that, if you are reading this and value what we are doing, you might help us by picking up a second copy next time you are here to share with a neighbour or friend. Maybe then we can continue to show the wider community all that we are. We remain ever passionate about wanting to be inclusive, offering an open door to everyone. Gavin Stride Director

Visit the Museum of Farnham to discover Farnham’s history, from its prehistoric roots to its hop growing boom and Victorian grandeur. The Museum is also home to an extensive art and craft collection thanks to the many artists and crafts workers who have been drawn to Farnham over the years. The Museum is located in a beautiful early Georgian town house, complete with many original features and a stunning walled garden hidden away behind the museum. Built in 1718 by a wealthy hop-grower, Willmer House is one of the many architectural gems in the town and well worth a visit for any lover of historic buildings.
