Wild About Burnley Outdoor Exhibition

The beauty of the natural world is captivating and has helped many people during the Covid pandemic, being a true source of inspiration and wonderous beauty.

This stunning exhibition of local wildlife photography highlights images taken in the Burney area since the start of lockdowns in 2020. They are a reminder of the beauty in nature which is all around us.

Connecting to nature through the different senses can be a boost to our well being. Listening for bird song, looking for insects, bees and butterflies or event noticing the movement of the clouds and change of the seasons. Being in the nature can help us find a sense of calm.

The new outdoor exhibition can be viewed on the rear lawn behind Towneley Hall. With thanks to the photographers who have kindly contributed towards the exhibition; Keith Bannister, Jen Coates, Andy Pritchard and Bob Rawlinson.

Towneley Hall is now open to the public.

During our period of closure staff have been busy working on essential maintenance to the hall, ensuring its place in Burnley’s history for another 600 years. Currently this means the Great Hall is closed whilst we undertake surveys and repairs to the Grade I listed ceiling.

Thank you for your support.

Hand sanitizer, one way system, social distancing, mask wearing and the NHS track and trace app will all be in use to keep visitors safe.
