"No picture means the same thing to any two people. Photography isn’t always about getting the perfect shot, it is often about what that image meant to the person who took it. Many of the images within this collection will mean something different to me than they will to you. That’s the aim of this collection - to help you consider just how much meaning can be taken from an image." - Bryn Turner.

Steerdeer Bicycle
Venue: The Station
A collection of faux hunting trophies created from bicycle components and found objects.

Growing up in rural Durham, from a young age, Richard had a keen interest in nature and wildlife in particular. As a born again cyclist, forever tinkering and updating his steed, he came to realize that the ergonomic shapes of certain bicycle components lent themselves to sculpture. The faux hunting trophy or bicycle taxidermy as it has been labelled has become a way of combining these two passions, whilst recycling and repurposing worn parts and found objects destined for landfill.

The ethos being that financially and environmentally art should not cost the Earth .

Voices From the Land
Venue: The Station
By Harriet Fraser

Farming and landscape in the Yorkshire Dales go hand in hand, and have done for at least a thousand years. But what’s the story today? What farming practices persist unchanged? Are some farmers tending to revert to less intensive farming? What new tools or approaches are affecting farming today? Voices From the Land shares the reflections of Yorkshire Dales Farmers about their day-to-day practices and their relationship to the unique landscape of fells and dales.

Boats and Planes...but mainly Trains!
Venue: The Station
A collection of oil on canvas paintings and photographs of scenes from the Age of Steam on British Railways in the 1950s and 60s.


Ted Parker captures the harsh grittiness of the final years of run down steam locomotives, the atmosphere of smoke filled locomotive sheds and stations with decades of grime encrusted infrastructure.

He has also included some of his sailing and aviation subjects, but the real challenge is capturing the allure of the steam locomotive, often in situations and conditions which would have been impossible to capture on film.

A must see for any transport fan!

My Fair Lady
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 19:30 - 22:00
Richmond Operatic Society presents this all time favourite!

My Fair Lady, based on George Bernard Shaw’s classic play Pygmalion, tells the familiar story of Eliza Doolittle. Eliza is a Covent Garden flower seller who, inspired by phonetician Henry Higgins’ public boast that he could change her social status by teaching her how to speak correctly, turns up at his door asking for lessons in order to fulfil her dream of working in a flower shop. However, Eliza eventually succeeds so well that she outgrows her lowly ambitions, and manages to become an indispensable part of Higgins’ life.

The original 1956 production of My Fair Lady with Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews helped define the modern musical theatre. The original production enjoyed a seven-year run on Broadway leading to the 1964 film (starring Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn), which won several Oscars, including Best Picture.

Its classic musical numbers include “With A Little Bit of Luck”, "Wouldn't it be Loverly?", “I Could Have Danced All Night”, “On the Street Where You Live” and “Get Me to the Church on Time”.
