Diglis Island Worcester
Saturday 20th August 2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Saving Sabrina photography exhibition on Diglis Island
Come and explore Diglis Island and marvel at the work of local photographer Paul Kilgallon. This unique photography exhibition looks at the wide range of relationships people have with the River Severn. The exhibition will highlight the work of some of the people, groups and charities working to improve the Severn and its catchment.
The exhibition is part of Paul’s ongoing project, Children of Sabrina. This project aims to intertwine the mythology, folklore and people who have a connection with the River Severn, within environmental landscape photography depicting the river.
The photography exhibition is on display inside the Victorian lock gate workshop. This historic building was a key site for the manufacturing of lock gates along the River Severn. After two years of refurbishment, the workshop is now a project space for Unlocking the Severn, but still contains lots of Victorian lock gate machinery. We couldn’t think of a better place to represent the importance and heritage of our river.
You do not need to book to attend this exhibition. Just come along during this open session.
Head to the island lock gates just off Diglis Dock Road, where a team member will be there to greet you and welcome you onto Diglis Island. You are free then to explore the exhibition within the workshop. Staff and volunteers will also be present if you wish to ask any questions about the exhibition or Unlocking the Severn.
There are toilet facilities on the island.
We are unable to provide refreshments, so please bring your own should you require them.
