A new exhibition launches this weekend, commemorating 50 years since the closure of Richmond Station.
The Station have worked in collaboration with Harrogate College lecturer Phil Day and photographer Fraser Wright to create a multimedia experience based on audio recordings of people who remember the old station in its former life.
These recordings will be brought to life with photographs and modern day drone footage. The exhibition will also include a mapped route of the old line and artefacts both from private collections and those rescued during the building’s restoration.
Communications Co-ordinator, Jemma Gregory says, “We are excited to see the finished product of Phil and Fraser’s hard work. The exhibition will be a perfect nod to The Station’s past, whilst celebrating the present and being excited for the future. It was a pleasure to listen to stories from people who remember the working station and we are privileged to be able to now share them publicly.”
The exhibition will be held in the Substation, opposite The Angel’s Share Bakery.
FREE heritage tours will also feature during the exhibition, beginning on the anniversary itself, 3rd March. Dates are as follows:
3 March: Talk and Tour 2pm (booking required for this event only due to limited spaces - 01748 850123)
