The Lightbox

Muddy says: One of the most exciting cultural spaces in the south-east, The Lightbox gallery and museum in Woking hosts a huge range of exhibitions.

The Lightbox museum in Woking

There are three main galleries at The Lightbox each presenting a range of exhibitions from classical through to contemporary art by both local artists and those who are internationally famous.

As well as curating original exhibitions, The Lightbox also shows works borrowed from major museums and galleries from here in the UK and around the world.

The museum is home to ‘Woking’s Story’, a permanent local history musuem, as well as the Joan Hurst Collection, and the prestigious Ingram Collection of Modern British Art, which is on long-term loan from Woking businessman Chris Ingram and includes works by Anthony Caro, Eduardo Paolozzi, Elisabeth Frink and Barbara Hepworth.

The Lightbox runs an extensive education and events programme, with a wide range of workshops for adults, families, children and young people.

If you are visiting with children you will find plenty to keep them occupied with hands-on activities and interactive displays.

Food and drink is available from the canalside Seasons Café and Kitchen, and there’s a gorgeous range of gifts available in the Gift Shop.

The Lightbox is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10.30am  to 5pm and Sunday from 11am to 4pm. It’s closed on Mondays and Bank Holidays.
