Opening of Fielding and Platt Gallery at Gloucester Quays
Sharing the Fielding story with the people of Gloucester
On 1 September 2012, an exhibition on the history of Fielding and Platt opened in Unit 52 of The Gloucester Quays Outlet Centre. Over 400 people of all ages attended the opening.
Children learnt about hydraulics by using mini cranes to lift weights. They also became apprentices for the day, learning about the industrial process by designing, cutting, and pressing their own badges.
The Quays now stands on the site of Fielding and Platt’s factory so it is appropriate that visitors to the centre can learn about the site and its history. Click here to see maps of the former factory site.
The photos here show the exhibition and people of all ages enjoying learning about Fielding and Platt and the work done there.
The Fielding and Platt Exhibition was free to visit at Gloucester Quays until it closed in November 2013.
