A 74- year lease has been secured on The Yard, an old railway building on the villages's Caen Street car park - it includes Braunton skate bowl and the local youth club run by Devon County Council...
The surfing museum has given Devon Youth Services a rolling 25 year lease, rent free, to continue running the youth club - it also carried out community painting and planting projects in the last 12 months with locals young people and families to help improve the area.
We've developed a flexible and innovative museum - each year you'll see a new themed exhibition at our venue which will then go on to tour around the UK. Alongside this, we're planning smaller outreach displays and regular events at The yard and other locations in North Devon, featuring music, film, art and culture.
Seriously, that sounds amazing! What a wonderful vision for the museum and its potential in not only the British surfing community, but also young people in the local and regional communities.
If you make it there, can you please let us all know what it's like? Thanks!
