ANNE Frank is the focus of a half-term exhibition being held in Huddersfield this week.
Tours and family activities around the Anne Frank and You exhibition will take place every day at Huddersfield Art Gallery.
The display is a dramatic multimedia touring exhibition which examines the experiences of Anne Frank – whose famous diary is one of the most widely-read books in the world – and shows how it is relevant to British teenagers today.
At 1pm every day, from today to Friday 26 October, art gallery staff will lead a short tour of the exhibition, giving an insight into the interpretation and why it was put together, along with the aims of the Anne Frank UK Trust.
The tours are free and open to families and individuals. They do not have to be pre-booked.
Also taking place each day, from 10am to 5pm, will be family activities inspired by the exhibition. Families will be able to create a diary, sketchbook or journal through a range of drawing and writing activities and also express their thoughts and responses to the exhibition in the ‘Anne Frank + Kirklees’ diary. They will also be able to record their hopes and wishes for the future on a Tree of Hope.
Materials and equipment for the free activities will be provided. The event is open to anyone but children under eight years must be accompanied by an adult. No booking required.
For further information about the tours or family activities, contact Ruth Gamble, Huddersfield Art Gallery, on 01484 221964.
The art gallery, on Princess Alexandra Walk, Huddersfield, is accessible via a lift and disabled toilets are available.
