Initially displayed at Scarborough Art Gallery, this touring exhibition tells the story of Britain’s seaside heritage and the early days of the seaside holiday. On display are objects, posters and a film produced by the Yorkshire Film Archive.
The Creative Core created a concept that appealed to all ages. Framed graphic units provide space for interpretation, using a bright design palette and maximising the potential for showcasing digitised archive materials including vintage posters, postcards and photographs. Double-sided beach-hut units form sturdy interactive stations for family activities and fun. We even created bespoke seating including a bench and custom-printed deckchairs!
Interactive engagements included ‘Make Your Own Postcard!’ with magnetic seaside icons and character cut-outs inspired by historic seaside fashions. Dressing up and a photo peep board encourages family photos, whilst ‘Seaside Memories’ uses smells to evoke reminiscences of visitors’ own seaside holidays.
