Photo Archive Volunteer Allen Mulliss and Heritage Officer Heather Richardson have chosen a range of images for our first external photograph exhibition.

Up the Street: 100 years of photographs round the Star and Shadow uses photographs selected from the photo archive to represent the passage of time around the site now occupied by the Star and Shadow cinema on Warwick Street facing the City Stadium.

Drawn from collections by anonymous photographers and those of the late Davey Pearson, they show the very literal change to the landscape over the past 100 years. 

The exhibition will run from Wednesday 5th till Sunday 30th June. As the Star and Shadow is a community space run entirely by volunteers, access to the exhibition is only available when they are open for an event, so please check their website to avoid disappointment www.starandshadow.org.uk -  Fridays and Sundays from 12-5pm are reliably open.

We are also on the look-out for other local venues to host future exhibitions, so if you have a venue in mind please get in touch.
