MID CHESHIRE LINE ART EXHIBITION

31st March 2019

Mid Cheshire Line Art Exhibition opens at Stockport station

The Mid Cheshire Line Art Exhibition featuring 14 framed 1930’s style rail posters depicting destinations on the Mid Cheshire Line, that connects Manchester to Chester via Stockport, Altrincham, Knutsford and Northwich, has opened (Friday 29th March 2019) on Stockport railway station.

This is an ideal place to visit if you are changing trains at Stockport railway station for journeys further afield.

The touring exhibition created by Chester based artist, Nicky Thompson, and sponsored by the Mid Cheshire Community Rail Partnership, is open daily in its own rustic exhibition hall on platform 3 until Wednesday 10th July 2019.

The fabulous poster pastiche based on the work of Frank Henry Mason and others was first launched at the Lion Salt Works in Northwich by Pete Waterman in August 2017.

Since then, these Marvellous Days Out posters for the Mid Cheshire Line have achieved international success with thousands of copies sold both globally and in the UK.

The posters, in the 1930s vintage illustrative style, include Manchester, Stockport, Altrincham, Hale, Knutsford, Lostock Gralam, Northwich, Delamere, Chester and four Chester Zoo posters Elephants, Giraffes, Penguins and Tigers.

The exhibition was opened by Cllr Wendy Meikle, the deputy mayor of Stockport on Friday 31st March 2019 and is available courtesy of Virgin Trains who manage Stockport railway station.

The exhibition continues its tour at the Weaver Hall Museum in Northwich from Monday 15th July 2019.
