Join us for blacksmithing demonstrations, curator talks, arts and crafts, and stop by our new exhibition – Coal, Steel and Earth: Photographs of Kingshill and Ravenscraig to learn more about the metal making history of the area. Free entry. Small charge for activities.

Coal, Steel and Earth: Photographs of Kingshill and Ravenscraig
Coal, Steel and Earth is the result of a collaboration between two artists, Frank McElhinney and John Farrell, who were born and raised in Lanarkshire. The exhibition is the exploration of Kingshill and Ravenscraig; one was a coalmine that fed the other, a great steelworks. Over a number of years, a picture was formed of what became of these former industrial sites, rather than what remains of them. Those of us who have some connection to these landscapes project our own histories onto them. We look back.

The photographs are intended to be of now. Fresh, open eyed, as objective as photographs might be. Nevertheless, the work invokes history as a process of change, and begs the question what kind of future do we want to build?

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for ‘Heavy Metal’ Show are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
