We have been collecting memories and images of Kirkby to tell the town’s life story in Kirkbyography.
An Explorer Trail of large-scale outdoor displays will be scattered throughout Kirkby so people can walk around the town and enjoy the photographs, ephemera and quotes.
The Kirkbyography Explorer Trail launches on Friday 18 November, with maps available from The Kirkby Centre, Kirkby Gallery, Kirkby Train Station and Kirkby Leisure Centre.
We are still collecting stories, as Kirkbyography
continues to document the development of the town.
Kirkby Gallery will host the extended Kirkbyography exhibition 14 August – 13 October 2023
