Bracing Air, Abundant Amusements: The Travel Posters of Charles Pears


24th May 2021 - 25th February 2022

When Pontefract Museum reopens (24 May), visitors can admire vibrant travel posters by Charles Pears. Bringing posters and original artworks from national museum collections together in Pears' home town for the first time, the exhibition features bustling beaches, bathing belles and bold art deco design.

The show will transport you back in time to the heyday of rail tourism and the British seaside holiday, with posters and artworks filled with sun, sea and sand. With special family-friendly object labels and activity bags for you to take home, it’s perfect for those craving a fun summer day out.

Family-friendly object labels and take-and-make activity bags make this the perfect experience for those craving a fun family day-out!

The exhibition was made possible with a grant from the Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund
