    Find out what kind of game player you really are when the Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered exhibition, on loan from the V&A’s Museum of Childhood, comes to The Base this summer.

    This interactive exhibition includes some of the most iconic, enthralling and visually striking games from the V&A’s outstanding national collection of board games with more than 100 objects from all around the world. Alongside family favourites such as Cluedo and Trivial Pursuit, and traditional games like chess, the exhibition will look at historical board games including ‘The Game of the Goose’ and other beautifully designed games from the 18th and 19th centuries.

    With hands-on activities and the chance to become part of one big interactive game, come and delight in old favourites, and discover what kind of game player you really are…

    Tino Sehgal at Blenheim Park & Gardens

    West Berkshire Villagers | Events | Things to Do | What’s On

    Blenheim Art Foundation is pleased to announce a major solo exhibition by Tino Sehgal. Following a year of extensive confinement indoors, this will be the first exhibition at Blenheim designed specifically for the Park and Gardens.

    Tino Sehgal (b. 1976) is known for artworks composed exclusively using the human body, voice, and social interaction. His artistic practice focuses on the fleeting gestures and subtleties of social encounters, with participation and open exchange as the subjects of value, rather than material objects. For this project, Sehgal will present a complex, roaming choreography imagined for Blenheim, involving more than 30 participants.

    Berkshire Youth is delighted to announce a partnership with West Berkshire Council to ensure young people can access youth provision over the summer holidays. The Holiday Activities and Food Programme is funded by Department for Education and distributed by West Berkshire Council.

    The programme aims to encourage young people to:

    • eat more healthily over the school holidays
    • be more active during the school holidays
    • take part in engaging and enriching activities which support the development of resilience, character and wellbeing along with their wider educational attainment
    • be safe and not to be socially isolated
    • have a greater knowledge of health and nutrition
    • be more engaged with school and other local services

    Berkshire Youth will deliver the programme to young people aged 11+ from the Waterside Centre during the summer holidays, one of the first programmes to run out of the newly refurbished centre. Berkshire Youth will also work with partners in Thatcham – including Thatcham Town Council, Thatcham Youth and RMD Adventure Learning – to develop a community summer programme for young people aged 11+ in Thatcham.
