Engaging workshops, networking and a great opportunity to share your expertise whilst learning about the best town solutions available to you and your town.

Day Visitor tickets includes full access to the entire 26 acre Living Museum allowing you to explore and compare and contrast town centres of the past with centres of today and the future.  Also please see the range of workshops that you can enjoy on the day.

Importantly, we will also find out which ‘Town Centre Solution’ is judged as the best in class for 2015!  Want to find out who the Business will be presenting to in the Challenge?  Click here to meet the Judging Panel.

We are also looking for a couple of Judges to join the existing panel due to a couple of people who can no longer make it due to other commitments.  If interested please visit our Becoming a Judge page and/or contact Mark Barnes on 07590 005692 to discuss.  You can also read why we do what we do and the benefits communities enjoy from Revive & Thrive in this web page.
