Lakeside’s hit show

March 12th, 2013

More than 18,000 people visited the Saturday Night and Sunday Morning exhibition at Lakeside Arts Centre.

Saturday Night and Sunday Morning: The Authentic Moment in British Photography was inspired by Alan Sillitoe’s groundbreaking Nottingham-based novel and film adaptation.

This exhibition comes on the back of a year- and-a-half of impressive visitor numbers for Lakeside, which started with the LS Lowry exhibition, which attracted over 46,000 visitors.

Lakeside director Shona Powell said: “I’m thrilled that Saturday Night and Sunday Morning has reached more than 18,000 people, making it our second most successful exhibition in the history of the Djanogly Art Gallery.

“We’ve had an incredibly enthusiastic response from visitors, and walking around it you could always hear people talking about memories evoked by the photographs on display. It really has touched many people who live in Nottingham, or have at some stage of their lives lived here.”
