Join Wessex Water this summer on a FREE tour of your local water recycling centre to see where it all goes after you flush your toilet!

About this event

Have you ever wondered what happens to the wastewater you use to shower, wash dishes and flush your toilets with? Well you can find out with Wessex Water’s ‘Around the bend’ tours at your local water recycling centre!

The team at Wessex Water provide the unseen service of treating 480 million litres of sewage every day, so this is a unique and rare opportunity to look behind the scenes at how it’s done with a guided tour from one of their operators.

You’ll also be able to walk through the ‘plop-up’ art gallery – The Loove – where you’ll see some familiar works of art re-imagined with a Wessex Water twist…

The Around the bend tours are suitable for all ages, however pets are not permitted.
