Rankin at the Allotments

May 20, 2014 at 4:17 pm 2 comments

We were happy to welcome international photographer Rankin to the allotments last Friday to take pictures of allotment holders and volunteers. The sun was shining, everyone had a great time and all of the photographs are fantastic! There was a buzz around the visitor centre all day, and especially in the evening when people started to arrive for the exhibition.

If you didn’t get a chance to come along, the photos will be projected at the Broadway cafe bar from 5pm each evening until the 1st June. We hope that there will also be an exhibition in the autumn too – we’ll let you know as soon as we have all of the details!

We also had a lot of media coverage. There was a great piece on the ‘Museums at Night’ show (44 mins in) on Saturday, interviewing some of the photographees. East Midlands Today (21 mins in) ran a lovely piece showing people’s reactions to their photos at the exhibition. We were also featured in the Nottingham Post and on the BBC News website. Finally, gardener Finlay and Suzannah from the Renewal Trust can be heard talking about Rankin’s visit on BBC Radio Nottingham (2 hours 40 mins in).

We’d like to thank everyone that helped to make this day happen!

Here’s a picture of some of the #Rankin4Notts team looking happy at the end of a tiring day!
