A guided tour around the museum’s galleries and exhibitions lead by our resident photographer Rebecca Peters. The session is being delivered as part of our Community Photography Competition and will focus on capturing the object collections and atmospheric spaces within the historic telegraph station and world war two tunnels.

The session will be very relaxed and will focus on responsive methods of photography, led by intuition and the creative eye. We invite participants to explore the collections in close detail and to look for hidden narratives and perspectives.
The session is open to all ages and abilities. You will need to bring your own camera and equipment (manual or digital photography), flash is prohibited within the galleries.
