Join us this June for the Great Big Green Week 2024 – the UK’s biggest ever celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect nature.
This year we are bringing you an exciting programme linked to our ‘Future proof’ theme across all of our museum sites which highlights how we can build resilience and mitigate and adapt to climate change, through learning, advocacy and best practice.

The Cost of Demolition
The Radical Reuse of Buildings
With James Grayley Architects @jamesgrayleyarchitects
Tuesday 11th June 6pm (doors at 5.30pm)
Building on the practice’s work over the last 15+ years, from the radical wrapping of a 1980s house in an insulated zinc skin to the recent bold transformation of a 1930s family home, this discussion poses questions of how radical reuse rather than demolition and replacement can help us meet the environmental challenges of our day.
