Old holiday snaps wanted?

21st June 2017 | Gareth

We’re all going a Summer Holiday is our next exhibition at Thought Foundation, Birtley.

Our space will be filled with a fabulous, sunny, holiday vibe, from an artificial beach outside to an actual 1970’s caravan! We would love to involve our community too. Can you email us a favourite snapshot with you or your family which best represents your holiday. It can be a nostalgic black and white pic from the 50’s and retro one from the 70’s or a more recent filtered photo. We are going to create an enormous holiday photo album starting with one from our family collection, oh we love a jumping pic!

Please email us a jpeg with a sentence giving your permission to display the photo at Thought Foundation to [email protected]
