Project Update August 2017
The complex two-day operation was completed on the 11th August and the Hawker P.1127 is now sitting on its plinths watching over the Hangar. Huge thanks to the teams from Finch of Bookham, Richard Rogers Conservation Ltd and Elmwood Projects for making this possible.
Project Update July 2017
The Bellman Hangar has now been handed over to the exhibition fit-out contractors, Elmwood Projects. To find out about the exhibitions they will be installing visit the Aircraft factory and Flight Shed pages.
In preparation for the exhibition installation, the Wellington Bomber was moved out of its temporary pavilion and into the Bellman Hangar on Wednesday 26th July. The Wellington Bomber will now not be on display again until the new exhibitions open in late October/early November.
The Line is in Sight...
For the past two years, Brooklands Museum has been undergoing one of the most important transformations in its 25 year history....
We’ve already raised over £8m to achieve this, donated by individuals, groups and organisations who share our passion for Brooklands.
With just a few months to go, we need to raise the final £250,000 to bring this outstanding project to completion. Any gift will help us to reach our Finishing Line and all are very welcome. Gifts of over £1,000 will be marked on one of our donor walls prominently displayed with the new facilities. Those over £5,000 will be included on our Major Donor Wall at the entrance to the Bellman Hangar.
If you are considering a gift of this magnitude, please contact David Nagle to discuss options on 01932 857 381 ext 238 or via email at [email protected]
