The Bradford Caravan Gallery Tour

Wed, 3rd Jun, 2015

As part of the Bradford Pride of Place Project, visit The Caravan Gallery’s iconic, mustard-coloured caravan as it tours to six locations across Bradford. 

The creation of artists Jan Willliams and Chris Teasdale, this innovative photography gallery-on-wheels has travelled thousands of miles, to locations across Britain, from London’s Tate Britain to the fishing port of Peterhead in the North East of Scotland.

The Caravan Gallery's photographs seek out and celebrate the curious, unusual and absurd, offering an insight into the reality and surreality of everyday life in 21st century Britain. Visitors will have the chance to see photographs made by The Caravan Gallery in Bradford and across Britain, as well as the opportunity to suggest locations worthy of investigation and share their own stories about life in Bradford.
