2019 - May 7th to June 8th - Exhibition - Primary School Art


With an average of 300 artworks in 40 annual shows we are talking of around 12,000 South Ribble children having exhibited their work in the Primary Schools Art Exhibitions.

The show this year was particularly colourful, and this is now a consistent annual trend. Over 400 pieces of work were exhibited, representing over half of South Ribble’s primary schools.

Marie Staines, formerly Head of Art at Penwortham Girls’ High School, has been kept fully employed making out the exhibitors’ certificates.

In short, this is an extremely cheerful exhibition



2019 - 9th April to 4th May - Exhibition - Those Magnificent Men


William Chambers, an electrical engineer by profession, served in the Great War as a photographic reconnaissance officer with 49 squadron in Kent.

His work is a remarkable testament to the precarious nature of early flight, and the brave men on both sides who took the war into the air.

We are pleased to welcome back 'Those Magnificent Men' a series of images reproduced from the original negatives of William Chambers by local photographer David Lewis.



2018 - 3rd to 24th November - South Ribble Open Art Exhibition


William Chambers, an electrical engineer by profession, served in the Great War as a photographic reconnaissance officer with 49 squadron in Kent.

Every year the museum is host to many of the amateur artists in the South Ribble area. 2018 was the thirty third annual exhibition. Stephen Sartin, former keeper at the Harris Museum in the city of Preston was the judge for this 2018 Exhibition.

To commemorate the centenary of Royal Assent to the 1918 Suffrage Bill a Soiree and tea party was held at the South Ribble Museum and Exhibition Centre on 6th of February 2018 exactly 100 years to the day.
