One hundred first-year School of the Arts students from across all disciplines have come together to create Worktown Revisited, a contemporary response to the 1937 Mass Observation.

The landmark social history project which centred on Humphrey Spender’s photography is showcased at Bolton Museum and the University of Bolton is home to the Centre for Worktown Studies.

The University of Bolton students’ work is on show at Crompton Place Creative Hub and Exhibition Centre, Mealhouse Lane, Bolton, BL1 from Thursday May 19 until 16 June 2016. It is open Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 3pm.

Said design theory lecturer, Leanne Lewis: ‘With this exhibition we are establishing an arts heritage trail – from the University’s Creative Show to Bolton Museum’s We Are Bolton and then on to us at Worktown Revisited.

‘Our students have both digital and more traditional artwork showcased in the exhibition. We can’t wait until opening night!’
