In this exciting new exhibition, visitors will witness how the working classes went from objects in photos, to heroic representations of industry and finally to photographers themselves.

Curated by leading documentary photographer Ian Beesley, the exhibition will highlight unseen images from important photographic collections.   To accompany these scenes of industrial life, the museum has commissioned new poems from Ian McMillan, giving new voice to the unknown people captured in the images.

Grafters: Industrial society in image and word is on display until Sunday 14 August.

Family Friendly exhibition, suitable for all ages

Booking Requirements: No booking required
