Swallows and Amazons - Arthur Ransome Exhibition

Date: 12 Aug - 31 Oct 2016
Price: Free
Start: From Friday 12 August

Working in Partnership with the Arthur Ransome Trust, our new exhibition ‘Voyages of Discovery’ lets you discover and enjoy the life and works of Arthur Ransome, author of the beloved tale - Swallows and Amazons.

On August 19, the brand new film release of Swallows and Amazons hit the big screen and to coincide with the launch of the film our exhibition gives you the chance to see some of the props, original drawings and an insight into the life of this renowned author.

The film tells the story of the Walker children, whose summer family holiday in the Lakes sees them sailing their boat ‘Swallow’ to a local island, only to find themselves in competition with a rival group of children who call themselves the Amazons.  As they battle for ownership of the island, the children learn the skills of survival and the value of friendship…

Join us here at Brockhole on Windermere to experience a whole host of adventure themed fun, from archery to boat hire, our brand new Swallows and Amazons trail and now, our exhibition - situated just by the shop and open 10.00am - 5.00pm.
