Here’s the programme of temporary exhibitions for 2018. Dates may be subject to change.
Spitfire Summer Runs 8th June to 22nd September 2018
“It was like driving a racing car after an Austin… riding a racehorse after a hack. It just didn’t seem to want to slow down. When one pulled back the throttle, it took a long time to take effect on its speed,” recalled Pilot Officer Tony Bartley, 92 Squadron, who converted from the Bristol Blenheim to the Spitfire 1a.
Discover what RAF and Luftwaffe pilots thought about the Spitfire as a fighter, take the Spitfire recognition test, and then book a flight to remember on Maidenhead’s own Spitfire simulator.
Spitfire Summer, an exhibition to mark the 80th anniversary of the Spitfire entering RAF service, opens on 8 June 2018.
Wednesday 13th June 12:45
25 Years of Maidenhead Heritage Centre
Speaker: Richard Poad MBE.
A real community asset for Maidenhead, learn how the Heritage Centre came into being and hear the story of how the MHC moved quite a few times before arriving at its current home, The (former) Cricketers’ Arms.
And … let’s also look forward to a bright future for Maidenhead Heritage Centre as the York Road area is rejuvenated.
Maidenhead Week will celebrate Maidenhead Heritage Centre reaching its 25th Anniversary in 2018. Sat 23rd – Sat 30th June 2018.
Including MHC 25th Anniversary Gala Dinner on Friday 29th June. Other events across the town to be announced.
This year our ever-popular River Thames cruises with live commentary will take place on Tuesday 4th and Thursday 6th September 2018.
