Tuesday - Sunday 10-4pm

'Since the Middle Summer's Spring' is a temporary commission for Darlington Head of Steam Museum by artist Cath Campbell.

Known for her interventions within in architecture, architectural models and drawings, Cath presents six small sculptures of railway stations between which a paper schooner travels along a model train track in a slow endless loop.

The work is a response to the Museum Collection, and explores the aesthetic of model architecture, model railways and the museum exhibit to create a dreamlike model world inspired by the epic voyage of a young woman from Southampton to Alexandria in 1858, in the company of the famous engineer Robert Stephenson.

Each sculpture depicts a railway station from a stopping point on their journey including Southampton Central Station, England, Mdina Station, Malta, Algeciras Station, Spain (near Gibraltar), Ramses Central Railway Station, Cairo, Egypt, Algiers Central Train Station, Algeria and Dijon-Ville Train Station, France. The boat is a model of Robert Stephenson's first yacht, Titania.

The work is commissioned for Meeting Point, led by contemporary art specialists Arts&Heritage. Meeting Point takes place at nine museums in the North East and Yorkshire from March to November 2016.

The project is funded by Arts Council England's Museum Resilience Fund.

Curated by Lara Goodband


In association with Green Port Hull and University of Hull School of Engineering, supported by BAE Systems and Spencer Group.


Amy Johnson Festival themes of engineering, flight and creativity come together in this must-see exhibition, displayed in our specially constructed gallery in Zebedee's Yard.


Twelve faithful reproductions of Leonardo da Vinci's flight and wind machines loaned by Da Vinci Museum, Florence, demonstrate the remarkable prescience of this great artist and his engineering genius. Alongside these Renaissance machines, specially commissioned and selected works by contemporary artists respond to ideas of flight or explore the use of engineering in their conceptualisation, design or production.


This fascinating exhibition, curated by Lara Goodband, reminds us that the creativity of the engineer and the inspiration of the artist are two sides of the same coin of human endeavor and innovation.


A series of associated artists' talks and hands-on workshops for young people will take place throughout July and August. See the festival website for full details of these and other events.
