A LOCAL museum is set to unveil its latest exhibition - the first one since its reopening after lockdown.

Cannon Hall Museum will play host to ‘Beautiful Barnsley’, an exhibit which is set to display photographs that celebrate the beauty of the town.

The display will feature a selection of 17 winning entries from a competition hosted by the museum and the International Garden Photographer of the Year organisation earlier in the year.

This includes the winning entry by Kyle Parr with his photograph ‘Evening Fields’, which details the farmland in Dodworth near the Trans Pennine Trail.

Hundreds of entries were submitted to the competition, showcasing the landscapes of the borough, and were judged by the International Garden Photography team and Kyte Photography.

The free exhibition is also the first time an exhibition will be on display in Cannon Hall’s outside spaces on all-weather outdoor structures.

Coun Tim Cheetham, cabinet spokesperson for place, regeneration and culture, said: “The response to the International Garden Photographer of the Year 13 exhibition has been phenomenal.

“It has been a real treat for people to experience such stunning images in the picturesque surroundings of the newly refurbished walled gardens.

“I am sure people will equally enjoy ‘Beautiful Barnsley’, the complimentary indoor exhibition which really showcases not only the talent of local photographers but also how lucky we are to live in such a gorgeous location.”

The exhibition will be on from September 25 until February 28.
