MATCHSTICK FLEET EXHIBITION
For more than 60 years master modeller Philip Warren has been painstakingly creating an armada of every Royal Navy warship afloat, in service or setting sail since the Second World War ... out of matchsticks and wooden matchboxes.
They are flat bottomed so that when placed on a blue tablecloth they look as though they are in the sea. But these aren’t just static models. If you can go down to the exhibition, get Mr Warren to show you how they move. The rotor blades spin on the aircraft, the radars move on the ships.
It might take more patience than most of us have- but Mr Warren’s steady hand is something of a natural talent. Not to be missed! Come and be amazed at the detail and accuracy of the scaled replicas of modern warships on display.
Made entirely of matchsticks and matchboxes these models, that have taken one man a lifetime to build, fill the whole of our exhibition area.
Adult £8
Concs £7
Children 5 to 15 (Inclusive) £3
