Roll up, Roll up: The Portrait Sideshow at Pontefract Liquorice Festival

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, step this way....

You could be the star of the show.

We are very pleased to announce that The Portrait Sideshow is in town capturing The Soul of the Pontefract Liquorice Festival for a salon style exhibition.

That’s right folks, for one day only, come and have you portrait made by our National Portrait Gallery exhibited Soul Harvester, Richard Stanley.

He’ll be using advanced lighting, posing and pouting techniques to conjure beautiful portraits to dazzle and amaze.

Step this way for your portrait-making/soul-taking! Come as you are, or dress to impress. Strike your signature pose; YOU ARE THE STAR OF THIS SHOW.

As part of your visit to the Pontefract Liquorice Festival on Sunday 13 July pop into Pontefract Library between 10.00am and 4.00pm and visit The Portrait Sideshow.  Your portrait will then be used in an exhibition at Pontefract Museum later this year.

Sunday 13 July, 10.00am – 4.00pm
Pontefract Library, Shoemarket, WF8 1BD

All welcome. 
Perhaps you could take inspiration from these poses created by liquorice workers from the Museum collections!
