The Caravan Gallery parks up at the Museum of Lancashire to showcase a selection of pictures taken during the last 15 years.

The images, from across the UK, will adorn the walls of the museum but also be transported around the city in a travelling yellow caravan.

Caravan Gallery artist, Jan Williams, said: “We want the photographs to get people talking and to appreciate and take more notice of their surroundings with fresh eyes. We can’t believe some of the amazing and bizarre sights we’ve seen on the streets of Britain.

“Hopefully they will inspire people and offer an alternative, but very real, insight in to the way we live today.”

More than 100 pictures are to be featured at the exhibition which runs from Saturday 30 January to Thursday 31 March.

County Councillor Marcus Johnstone, cabinet member for environment, planning and cultural services, said: “I’m very much looking forward to this exhibition coming to Preston.

“The photographs on display will be an unusual view of everyday life in 21st century Britain.”

The Museum of Lancashire is earmarked for closure by the county council as it seeks to save more than £300 million by 2020.
