Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition returns to Beverley

Excitement is building in Beverley for the return of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, which will be back for a third year in the Treasure House from Saturday, 22 June to Saturday, 14 September. The exhibition will be open on Sundays throughout its run.

On loan from the Natural History Museum in London, the exhibition will feature 100 awe-inspiring images, from fascinating animal behaviour to breathtaking wild landscapes.

Councillor Shaun Horton, portfolio holder for tourism, culture, and leisure, said: “This exhibition is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, and provides a truly global platform that showcases the natural world’s most astonishing and challenging sights for over 50 years.

“I am delighted that we are able to put on the exhibition again in Beverley to meet popular demand, and I hope that many more people will come to see it. It is always an enjoyable, educational, and thought provoking experience for visitors.”

The exhibition will be accompanied in the Treasure House by an exhibition of ‘Sculpting British Wildlife’ by Emma Stothard. Life-size wicker and wire animals by the renowned Yorkshire sculptor – some specially commissioned – will be taking over the Treasure House and mingling with the Gallery collection.

There will also be a programme of events for adults and children to accompany the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition. A wide range of merchandise relating to the exhibition will also be on sale.

Admission to the exhibition is free.
