Special Town Exhibition

27 October 2016

The past, present and future of Bishop Auckland is being explored in a special pop-up museum.

Look Past the Present, curated by a group of community volunteers, will run at the Town Hall, in partnership with the Auckland Castle Trust, from 5 November to 24 December 2016.

Using items donated by project participants and the general public, alongside new work specially commissioned from artist Sarah Farooqi, the exhibition will explore nine key sites around the town and the impact they have had on helping to shape its current landscape.

Anyone who visits the exhibition will also be invited to plot their own memories on a special town map.
