Tales from the rails – exhibition at Sheffield Railway Station from the 28th May

Paul Whitfield (Creative Writing PhD student) has recently been working on a creative project  (Tales from the Railswith students from Newfield School. The results have inspired artistic responses from Artworks and an exhibition is about to take place at Sheffield Railway Station from the 28th May, running through June and July.

Tales from the Rails celebrates stories from early rail history in Sheffield. Newfield’s students have researched, written and recorded audio dramas. The stories include a ghost story; the mysterious death of a variety artiste; a famous diamond robbery at H.L. Brown’s; railway strikes; and an elephant!

ArtWorks have taken the stories and created art for their first display in Sheffield Station as a Station Adopter along with a QR code to listen to the stories.

ArtWorks inspires and helps adults with learning disabilities to achieve their potential and develop important life skills through creative workshops and placements.
