Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition will take place at the Beverley Art Gallery. It will run from Saturday 11th February to Saturday 22nd April 2017.
The world-renowned Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, on loan from the Natural History Museum in London, features 100 awe-inspiring images, from fascinating animal behaviour to breathtaking wild landscapes.
Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most respected photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases the natural world’s most astonishing and challenging sights for over 50 years.
Councillor Richard Burton, East Riding of Yorkshire Council portfolio holder for civic wellbeing and culture said:
“This is truly exciting news, and will really attract people to Beverley. I am delighted that our first major East Riding event in the Hull UK City of Culture 2017 programme will be this stunning exhibition, which is always hugely popular wherever it appears.
It is particularly pleasing that the recent refurbishment of Beverley Art Gallery has allowed us to attract exhibitions of this calibre. There is no doubt that this exciting exhibition will show off the Art Gallery to its full potential”.
Wildlife Photographer of the Year is developed and produced by the Natural History Museum, London. It appears in Beverley as part of only seven UK locations.
