Lucy Johnson has been keeping us posted about the installation of 'Menagerie' at the Walker. She's not the only exhibition officer who has been busy lately though. Linda Brizell has sent over this sneaky peek of the next exhibition to open at the National Conservation Centre this Saturday, which she reckons fans of a certain band will love:
"Last week I was on gallery for the installation of Now These Days are Gone, an exhibition consisting of over 40 fantastic photographs taken by Michael Peto during the filming of Help! The photographs range from filming on a very cold Salisbury Plain, having tea at the Antrobus Arms to at home with Ringo, Maureen and their pet dog, Tiger. The exhibition will be of great interest to any Beatles fan as it gives a glimpse of the famous four off-guard and relaxed.
This will be the first time the photographs have been shown in the North West, they have previously been on shown in London, Dundee and Ireland.
Now These Days are Gone opens on Saturday 18 August and runs until Sunday 2 March 2008."
