A major photographic exhibition showcasing Tewkesbury’s heritage buildings will transport visitors back in time, providing an opportunity to reflect on how the town has changed over the years.
Tewkesbury’s High Street Heritage Action Zone (HSHAZ) has commissioned Tewkesbury-based photographer Jack Boskett to curate 'Tewkesbury Then and Now', exhibition which will enable visitors to view earlier images of the town and contrast them against a range of contemporary photographs.
The HSHAZ is a partnership between Tewkesbury Borough Council and Historic England to invest £1m in the regeneration of the historic town centre.
Visitors can expect to see a variety of historic photographs of Tewkesbury; with details such as shop fronts, Tewkesbury’s railway, the mop fair and the architectural details of individual buildings.
The HSHAZ has also been working with the primary school on a project to examine the town’s architecture, for which Year 5 pupils have designed a set of Top Trumps-style playing cards based on buildings in Tewkesbury.
