Lakeland Arts are delighted to announce the schools that we will be working with as part of the Esperance Project, the schools programme from Windermere Jetty. Esperance is a collection of six individual projects, which will provide schools with a unique opportunity to engage with the Museum before it opens. Each project will offer the participating schools a fantastic opportunity to experience first-hand, the build up to the opening of Windermere Jetty.
Martin Ainscough, Chair of Lakeland Arts and David Atkinson, Managing Director Thomas Armstrong Construction, welcomed over 80 supporters to celebrate the official groundbreaking ceremony at the construction site of the new Windermere Jetty, Museum of Boats, Steam and Stories. The project, design and construction teams were joined by donors, volunteers and other supporters to mark this major milestone for the future of the special boat collection.
