A Year in the Life of Chew Stoke Village
Exhibition Party

Join us for the next MPF exhibition party to launch A Year in the Life of Chew Stoke village by Martin Parr.

In 1992 Martin immersed himself in the rural Somerset village of Chew Stoke, situated on the outskirts of Bristol, capturing the culture and traditions of English village life. The work was originally commissioned by the Telegraph Magazine and this is the first time in 30 years the project will be exhibited.

The evening will be themed around a traditional English village fete, featuring a Tombola, Splat the Rat, and the chance to take home a giant jar of sweets, if you can guess how many sweets are inside.

The exhibition brings together an archive wall featuring over 250 images alongside large exhibition prints from the series. There will be an opportunity to purchase 9×9 inch prints of any images featuring in the show for £10 on the night and throughout the duration of the exhibition. Prints will be stamped on the reverse and are available in the gallery only.

Free drinks will be available supplied by local brewery Lost and Grounded.

This will be the first time Martin Parr has exhibited at MPF since the Foundation opened in 2017 with Martin Parr’s Black Country Stories.
