Kings               Community Gallery: Kings - a photographic exhibition by Sabrina Susan Fuller Running from Saturday 18 September to Sunday 31 October, our next Community Gallery exhibition Kings is a work that celebrates the locals.  The Kings was a long established pub on Manchester’s Oldham Street, at the heart of the Northern Quarter.  A place apart – warm, funny, challenging and chaotic – it was always going to be part of the area’s history rather than its regenerated future.  This work celebrates those who drank there and raises issues of the effect of urban renewal on established communities.
