The Spike Charlotteville Get Involved About Us


31st October

Halloween at the Spike it's Spooky Spike

Another brilliant event organised by the volunteers.  Held on a Saturday during half term week meant this was always going to be a popular event.  75 children and as many parents had great fun completing the Spike Treasure Hunt Quiz.  more

21st October

Another award for the Spike

We were honoured to receive a commendation at the Guildford Design Awards that are held every two years.

The event was held at the Guildhall

Pictured (L to H) are Nigel Barker from English Heritage, John Redpath and Wayne Hemingway.

26th September

First Re-enactment

From a script prepared by T-Jay, the first enactment was a great success.  Young archaeologists from Chertsey Museum were the guinea pigs and what a great time they had being processed for a night in the Spike.

Very moving stuff well brought home by brilliant acting.

12th September

Heritage Open Day

We had a much quieter Open Day than on previous years and are blaming the absence of the Shuttle Bus for it.  However there were more attractions than ever this year.

19th July

Volunteer's Fun Day

The first Volunteer Fun Day was a great success.

4th June

Spike takes part in the elections!

The Spike was used as a Polling Station for the elections on the 4th June.  The low turnout was, we are told, due to politics rather than the venue!

10th February

Spike receives a Royal Visit

HRH the Duke of Kent came to visit the Spike.

It was a very exciting day for all who took part and the Duke chatted to many of those involved in the Spike Project after his tour.

He unveiled a plaque to commemorate his visit and also signed the visitor's book.
