Yate Heritage Centre enters the busy new year with its new exhibition titled ‘Get orf my Land’- it is been nearly 50 years since “Yate Market” finally closed its doors on Station Road. This new exhibition highlights the history of the farming community in Yate including the popular agricultural market which was a central fixture between the largely agricultural and rural Yate in 1862, and the urban and industrial settlement of Yate had become by 1975.
Between 17th January and 23rd February 2024, a selection of images and artefacts will be available to enjoy, taking visitors back to a time where Yate boasted over 20 dairy farms locally!
February’s program of popular half term family workshops includes FREE activities such as ‘Willow Craft’, join us on 16th February (ideal for children aged 5-12, advance booking essential).
The Friends of Yate Heritage Centre host Steve Grudgings will be giving a lecture on all things ‘Kingswood Coal’, taking place on 20th February at 7.30pm. £2 general admission, free entry for members of the Friends.
Between 24th February and 16th March, be transported into the rich history and culture of Ukraine, with an exhibition curated in partnership with Ukrainian people, who have resettled locally.
