Schools and Learning

The Lightbox has been running award-winning learning programmes since 1997. We work with artists, schools and community groups to provide inspiring creative activities for all ages and abilities.

The Lightbox welcomes bookings from school and community groups to visit any of the changing exhibitions in one of our three galleries, or to visit Woking’s Story, our interactive museum that houses a permanent collection of Woking’s social history. The award-winning building also has an interactive display on the environment and a purpose built Education Studio, where visiting groups can take part in hands on creative workshops.

If you would like to join our schools mailing list please send your name, school and address to or contact our Learning Team on 01483 737812.

We also run an extensive programme of learning events for children, young people and adults.
