The British Museum of Surfing is well and truly open for business next week, and the whole of North Devon is hoping that the recent run of shocking weather won’t put people off heading down for Half Term.
Our take is that the weather has been so darn bad, that things have got to get better! So whilst we can’t guarantee the weather, we can guarantee that Pete and the team at the MoBS will be there to welcome you with open arms – either to their acclaimed Sixties SURFER exhibition at the Museum in Braunton; or at one of the 50th anniversary screenings of the Endless Summer at Croyde Village Hall.
Half term special event – Sixties SURFER!
Sat 15th Feb, 2014 to Sat 22nd Feb, 2014

Opening 11am – 3pm: As a special treat for the first school holiday of 2014, there’s a last chance to see our acclaimed exhibition Sixties SURFER! During the half term from February 15th – 22nd you’ll be able to explore the sights and sounds of when modern surfing culture first washed ashore on the UK’s beaches in the 1960s.
Plus – kids go free! Yes, for this week only children aged 16 or under can visit free of charge. Click here for details of other admission prices, opening times & where to find us. We’ll also be screening the classic surf movie ‘The Endless Summer’ on the evenings of February 15th & 18th at Croyde Village Hall – celebrating the 50th anniversary of it being filmed in 1964 (release ’66).

Take a trip down memory lane this February half term holiday as we screen Bruce Brown’s iconic surfari ‘The Endless Summer‘ – to celebrate the official 50th anniversary of the movie being filmed in 1964.
Bruce himself has sent us a special ‘thank you’ message from California that we will show before the movie! The charity film nights are part of a week of events for the school holiday – don’t forget to drop in on the Museum of British Surfing for the last chance to see our special exhibition about surfing in Britain in the 1960s – click here for details.
