…and Ransome’s Future Today

‘All four of them had been filled at once with the same idea. It was not just an island. It was the island, waiting for them. It was their island. With an island like that within sight, who could be content to live on the mainland and sleep in a bed at night?’
Swallows and Amazons

We know that ART’s potential will only be fulfilled though a vibrant Ransome Centre. But this hasn’t discouraged us from making a start on a number of worthwhile projects, including:

  • Republishing out-of-print Ransome works;
  • Ransome-related exhibitions, displays and events; and
  • A free-to-use Swallows and Amazons explorer app.

Together with our other projects, these are stepping stones on our journey towards a permanent Ransome home.
