51st Wildlife Photographer of the Year tour at Queensgate

Exciting times ahead for our local shopping centre Queensgate.

If you like photography and wildlife then you will have to head to Queensgate’s Central Square from Monday 11th July where 100 images will be on display. The images are part of an exhibition on loan from the Natural History Museum and feature images showing animal behaviour and natural wild landscapes. An international tour of the images will allow them to be seen over 6 continents.

The Wildlife Photography of the Year was first launched in 1965 with 361 entries. Now the event attracts 42,000 entries from 96 countries.

“Wildlife Photographer of the Year celebrates the very best nature photography, and it is consistently one of our most successful touring exhibitions, enjoyed by millions every year. These images tell thought-provoking stories about our planet that prompt us all to think differently about the natural world and the future we want to create.” Jan English, Head of Touring Exhibitions, Natural History Museum. 

And the best thing: the exhibition is completely free to the public. If you want to visit the exhibition then it runs until 16th August. Queensgate Shopping Centre is open 7 days a week.

Opening times are:

Monday-Wednesday: 9am – 5:30pm

Thursday & Friday: 9am – 8pm

Saturday: 9am – 6pm

Sunday: 10:30am – 4:30pm

Mark Broadhead, Centre Director at Queensgate Shopping Centre said: “We are extremely excited to welcome one of the world’s most prestigious photography exhibitions to Queensgate and equally excited that it’s a first for Peterborough. The exhibition brings together stunning imagery captured by photographers from across the globe and presents them in an inspiring showcase of the very best.
