Project Description

Our Summer exhibition focuses on the comedy archives of the incredibly talented Mr Andy Hollingworth.

Andy Hollingworth has been photographing the world of comedy for almost two decades.

He has documented the careers of some of our best-loved and infamous laughter-makers and championed a number of important acts from their earliest days to sell-out arena tours and groundbreaking television shows.

This exhibition features some well-known iconic images from Andy’s huge archive, a set of new portraits made over the last year especially for this exhibition and, for the first time, photographs of items which helped to shape the history of the genre from this century and the last.
