On Saturday 12 May 2018 there will be a rare opportunity for visitors to visit Portland Works and find out more about our history and makers.
We will be open to the public from 11am to 5pm with lots to see and do including:
- Talks and videos
- Visits to Tenants’ workshops and artists’ studios
- Self-guided tours
- Stalls and refreshments
You will also be able to meet the volunteers that are helping us to rebuild Portland Works and see the progress of renovations for yourselves. Our charitable arm, the Friends of Portland Works, will also be on hand to demonstrate the contributions they’re making to this unique project. Please come along – all welcome!
How To Find Us
Lots of buses (75/76, 97/98 and more) stop on London Road, near the Cremorne pub. Turn into John Street, take first right onto Hill Street, walk past GoOutdoors, and Randall Street is next left – our entrance is on the junction. It’s a 3 minute walk from London Road. Alternatively you can walk up Randall Street from Bramall Lane, opposite the football ground.
We’re a ten minute walk from the Moorfoot. Aim for London Road and turn left into Hill Street, just after Sainsbury’s. Then follow the directions as above.
Portland Works is on the junction of Hill Street and Randall Street. There is adequate street parking on Hill Street or Randall Street but watch out for the “resident permit only” bays. Also please DO NOT use the Go Outdoors car park next door as this is for their customers only.
Set your SatNav to S2 4SJ.
