Chapel Gallery summer activities


The Chapel Gallery in Ormskirk are planning a summer of activities that are out of this world.

This summer marks the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing and the Gallery’s line up of cosmic activities includes Outer Space.

This area will be open daily from 20 July for families to enjoy numerous space-related activities. No booking is required but please phone the Gallery on 01695 571328 in advance to check availability.

There are two great films for families to enjoy for free with Wall-E on 7 August and Monsters vs Aliens on 21 August. Both films start at 2pm and while booking isn’t required film fans should arrive early to make sure they get the best seats.

Children aged eight and over can enjoy a series of fun space-themed activities at the gallery, all of which cost £8 per child. To book contact Chapel Gallery 01695 571328 or email chapel.gallery@westlancs.gov.uk. Consent forms are required for young people booked onto these sessions. Payments can be made at Chapel Gallery or phone 01695 571328:
