The once derelict site of the old Whisstocks Boatyard has been undergoing a transformation and is approaching completion.
The Longshed has been fitted out to become,a purpose built community resource comprising a boatbuilding workshop and mezzanine gallery. It will be home to a range of creative projects that people can take part in, or simply watch progress.
They have the biggest door and if you don’t know what’s going on behind it, NOW is your chance to find out.
Come and look in The Longshed on the Woodbridge Waterfront from 11.00 – 15.00 on Saturday 21st April.
Come and talk to some of the townsfolk of the Woodbridge Riverside Trust who have actually made this happen. You can join them and listen to explanations about Skiff building and the Coastal Rowing Club. You can see the splendid size of the Saxon ship that has been responsible for the awesome dimensions of this covered space. You can hear about plans for Art, Music, Education and Exhibitions in the forthcoming Heritage Centre on the mezzanine and meet some of the real people who have already brought you the film, Life on the Deben or the musical production of The King’s River.
