An unusual outing and something to do for those days between Christmas and New Year


The Longshed will be open 27-30 December, 11am-4pm – come and enjoy our wonderful Woodbridge waterfront, and see what we are doing in the shed.  Talk to the workshop folk, where skiff building is now in progress, and find out about the planned reconstruction of the Sutton Hoo Ship and its planned reconstruction in this workshop.


In the Gallery will be a “Rubbish Experience”!  Just to be clear… this is a mixture of art and information about marine pollution and plastic waste.  There will be:

–          Exhibits of art made from beach debris

–          Information from the Marine Conservation Society and from Suffolk Coast and Heaths

–          Some short videos

–          A competition to create a Sea Creature at home, made of pre-used materials, with the chance of winning a Family voucher for the Riverside Theatre.  Entries to be brought to Longshed between 27 and 30 December.  For more information, click this link:   competition entry form

–          On 30th December, Jason Alexander – who organises Rubbish Walks in Woodbridge – will be with us in the afternoon, with exhibits of his beachcombing finds – rubbish and otherwise – and to chat about his work.

And how about joining the Rubbish Walk? In the morning Jason will be leading his the last walk of this year.  Anyone is welcome to join him – find out more at


We still have some space on the John Gibbins Gallery.  This is an event ‘by the people for the people’, so if you would like to contribute – whether it be ‘art’ or ‘information’ or examples of “marine Rubbish” – let’s talk about it.   Contact: Melanie Poole, on”
