Get Ready to Plan Your Surrey Social Diary for the Month Ahead!
January 4th 2018
The first few days of the year can sometimes seem a little bleak, but good news! There’s plenty going on in Surrey at the moment to brighten those New Year horizons. Here’s a little something for everyone to help you plan your social diary for the month ahead!
For art lovers, there’s a real delight at Haslemere Museum this month. ‘Byron Cooper – Tennyson’s Country’ is a wonderful new exhibition taking place from 6th January – 24th February. Showcasing the Museum’s collection of works by the renowned Victorian artist, George Gordon Byron Cooper and the poetry of Alfred, Lord Tennyson, the exhibition depicts the dramatic landscapes and vivid emotions of the artwork and the prose.
For lovers of all creatures great and small, why not take a trip to The Glasshouse at RHS Garden Wisley this January? Be transported into the tropical zone, and linger among the loveliness of the beautiful butterflies that live there. You’ll be sure to rid yourself of the winter blues as you indulge in the exotic colours and tropical plants. Then top the visit off with an indulgent trip to the café!
Alternatively, for something that all the family can get involved in, there’s a drop-in event at Haslemere Museum: the Big Garden Bird Watch. Enjoy making bird cakes, taking part in craft activities and learning about the bird species in and around the Museum grounds.
For something intergenerational this January, why not visit Bourne Hall Museum Kids Club for its ‘WW2 – A Children’s War’ event? The younger members of the family can learn about what it was like to be a youngster during the war. Events include gas mask training, air raid drills and, for a real taste of what life was like, the aftermath of a bombing.
If you’re a vintage car enthusiast, put this date in your diary: 27th January for the Vintage Motoring Film Evening at Brooklands Museum. Tickets include a two-course dinner followed by films showing until approximately 10:30pm. The Motoring Village will also remain open after its normal closing time of 4pm until 6pm for those attending the film night.
Whether you’re of Scottish heritage or not, why not indulge in a spot of Burns Night celebration at Denbies Wine Cellar? You’ll enjoy a traditional four course dinner, which will include haggis, neeps and tatties, a Scottish Ceilidh band in the Conservatory, live entertainment throughout, and, of course, a wee dram!
