The Lightbox

When I changed my job, we didn't know where to move. After a chat with my colleagues, about where to stay, we decided on Woking even though we knew no one there.

The Woking Lightbox What attracted us to Woking was that is was a small town where we could have all the facilities we needed within walking distance and it was close to London for 雅蓮's commute. but what I found really n-i-c-e was that there was quite a few cultural places too. A large library, 2 theatres and a soon to be opened museum, the Lightbox.

Gromit at the Lightbox The Lightbox opened with an exhibition about 雅蓮's favourite, Wallace and Gromit whose creators come from not far away. We went there and really enjoyed it together with the permanent exhibition on local Woking history, not to mention the very nice architecture and location next to the canal.

I registered to receive their newsletter by email and found out that they regularly organise little concerts as well. We went there 2 weeks ago and really enjoyed it. The Lightbox is really n-i-c-e and is definitely one of the reasons why we like Woking.


And it seems that we are not the only ones to like the Lightbox as it has just won The Art Fund Prize for museums and galleries 2008. Congratulation to all the staff and keep up the good work.
