The 'little GREAT exhibition’ that has been attracting crowds to creative events at the Windsor Yards shopping centre every weekend has come to an end - after two days dedicated to Victorian inventions and transport.

On Saturday Eddiespoke Historical Bicycles brought along a whole fleet of Velocipedes, penny farthings, boneshakers and safety bicycles. The highlights included one of John Kemp Starley’s earliest Rover safety bicycles, a 160 year old solid wrought iron Velocipede and two Hirondelle bicycles.

Edwin Knight’s enthusiasm was contagious and he had the audience engaged in discovering the evolution of bicycles, types and heights of wheels, varying handles and the beginnings of the foldable bicycles. Young participants had a go at mounting a pennyfarthing much to their delight.

On Sunday, as part of the last day Creative Heritage events, Rebecca Seears from Windsor Carriages shared with the audience her family tradition of 170 years of operating the only hackney carriage license in England for travelling on The Long Walk and throughout The Great Park, with continued permission from the Queen and the Crown Estate.

Admiral Sir James Perowne, Constable and Governor of Windsor Castle was the chief guest at this closing event accompanied by his wife Lady Nicola Perowne, plus past Royal Borough Mayor and Mayoress John and Margaret Lenton.

Sir James said: "The little GREAT exhibition’ has delivered an amazing, fun and exhilarating two-month Victorian themed exhibition, allowing children to learn about the history that gave them a foundation in life.

“This sort of initiative is so good for the town.”

The little GREAT exhibition has been organised by Busy Buttons Creative Centre which is based in Windsor Yards. It has hosted six creative heritage events.

It will be back later this year with another series of themed activities.
