Description

The conference is now sold out.

We do have a waiting list, if you wish to be added to this please register and follow the instructions.

This event provides a unique opportunity to enjoy the stunning photographic collection ‘The Talbot Archive’. The photography catalogues Lancashire life from the 1930s through to the 1990s from Blackburn photographers Wally and Howard Talbot.

This collection forms a wonderful archive of local life that will increase in value as a vital piece of social documentary photography in a regional and national context.
