The Ted Lewis Exhibition continues at Wilderspin National School

The life, times and art of Ted Lewis continues to be celebrated at the Wilderspin National School in the Aelberry Building.

The exhibition, organised by the Ted Lewis Group, has already been on display at North Lincolnshire Museum in Scunthorpe and later this year will be on display as part of Hull City of Culture.

Manchester born Lewis spent his formative years in Barton and as well as being celebrated as an author – one of his books was the novel “Jack’s Return Home” that became the film “Get Carter” (1971) starring Michael Caine – he was also gifted illustrator and jazz musician.

The exhibition can be viewed Thursday to Sunday from 11am to 3pm
