Bingley Makes Music is a new photographic exhibition by Bingley Camera Club that is displayed on seven windows on Bingley Main Street and as a print exhibition inside Bingley Arts Centre.  The photographs were taken over the past year to celebrate and showcase the diversity and joy of music in Bingley.

Bingley Camera Club members worked with the community organisation Bingley Music Town to document the music taking place in Bingley in all its many forms. Amongst the musical activities featured, the exhibition includes the Bingley Bellringers, who continue a 350-year tradition at All Saints Church, rising star 16-year old Brandon Symonds playing the blues in a local bar; and Ros Seaton, who became an accidental gig organiser and promoter of sold-out classical music concerts in Cottingley. The photos show community choirs, local bands, and visiting musicians playing to enthusiastic audiences and in rehearsals, and they are an invitation to everyone to get involved with community music, arts, and creativity.

The exhibition runs from 16th May to 26th June on seven windows on Main Street, Bingley, with twenty prints on display inside the Bingley Arts Centre, which opens Monday - Friday from 10:00 to 13:00. 
The exhibition was made possible by a small arts grant from Bradford Council.  The exhibition is also available online from May 16th via:
