Art Workshops & Remount Depot Tours
Thursday 28th August
Artist lead workshops, a chance to explore some museum objects through art. These workshops will be running throughout the day. These workshops have been sponsored by The Army Ogilby Trust. Also due to popular demand the museum staff will also be offering guided tours to the First World War Remount Depot located within the grounds of the Arborfield Garrison. Tours will be held at 11.30 am & 2 pm and will take an hour. The total distance covered will be about a mile, some of which will be open fields. We would suggest booking an advance to avoid disappointment.
