Event description
Fairground Reminiscence, an immersive exhibition for all the family celebrating fairground culture, heritage and legacy.

About this Event

“Inspiring and full of childlike joy! Engaged our whole family from 2 years up!” Audience at Gala Gallery 2019

The exhibition celebrates the extraordinary lives of showmen, fairground heritage and the communities they visit, created through artist Adam Russell’s own unique perspective and his relationship to many showman families. The project has been inspired by Adam's dad; Keith Russell and his childhood memories of growing up within a showman family and working on fairgrounds as a young boy.

These events include our live outdoor adpated performances extracts of Fairground Reminiscence Live with Adam Russell and Alys North.

Discover original fairground objects, posters, photographs and video footage presented within an immersive fairground set design, alongside contemporary installations and interactive games. The exhibition features a collection of oral histories from showmen; these original accounts are beautifully woven into a bespoke sound score breathing life into the exhibits.

‘Magical, Brought me back to Childhood!’ Audience Late Shows

The live performances will take place outside the gallery with social distancing measures for audiences.

The exhibition will operate on a one-way route to ensure the safety of all our visitors and the exhibition team.

Entry will be permitted for ticket holders only (one ticket per person).

Freshly made candy floss will be available for all our visitors to take home after your visit, free for all so you can take home a nostalgic fairground treat!

To ensure the safety of our visitors and our team, regular thorough cleaning will take place throughout the day. Interactive games are now limited and our exhibition and our food hygiene has been adapted to follow government guidelines for the safety of everyone.
