New Exhibition and Father's Day Special at the Dean Heritage Centre

New Exhibition and Father's Day Special at the Dean Heritage Centre

Visitors can bring their Dad to the Dean Heritage Centre for FREE this Father’s Day as the Centre opens its latest exhibition by Forest of Dean photographer Ben Locke.

One visitor paying full price will be able to treat their dad to free admission which includes entry to the Gruffalo Woodland Trail and the Ben Locke Photography exhibition.

Ben lives in the local area which is where the majority of his photography is done. He uses a wide range of techniques including infrared photography to produce images that reflect the beauty of motion in natural forms such as clouds, stars and lakes. Featured on Spring Watch and more recently the cover of the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean visitor’s guide for 2012, Ben’s work is becoming increasing popular throughout Gloucestershire and beyond.

The collection showcases the landscapes and wildlife of the area and is a fantastic opportunity to see up close and intimate images of fallow deer, wild boar and other animals that dwell in the forest.

When asked about his latest exhibition Ben said, ‘I’m looking forward to showing some new pieces in the gallery. I’ve used the space at the Centre before and I’m looking forward to returning. It’s the ideal place to showcase my photography of the Forest of Dean. I hope visitors enjoy looking at them.’

Why not bring the family down for a day at the centre and a hearty Sunday roast lunch in the onsite café. Dad’s receive a free tea coffee or soft drink with their roast dinner and the café boasts a wide range of cakes, sandwiches and a Gruffalo children’s menu.

Entry to the Ben Locke photography exhibition is included in the Dean Heritage Centre’s admission fee.
