The RSA Island Centre’s Interpretation Centre once again opened its doors to the public on Saturday 19th September 2009, as part of the London Open House Day.
With around 200 people visiting the centre, the day was a great success. The venue was very popular with people wishing to experience and understand the history of the Royal Small Arms Factory. Amongst the many visitors were a number of previous employees of the Small Arms Factory, for whom this place brought back memories of their working life.
The event aimed to foster greater community spirit amongst visitors and residents of the Island and also provided them with a unique opportunity to step back in time and examine what made the Island a good place in which to live, work and play. The event will be repeated in September 2010.
We would like to thank the RSAF Apprentices Association who kindly gave their time to share their immense knowledge and expertise with the guests.
