Norman Cornish Art Trail

11th April 2019

The John Kitson archway of Spennymoor Town Hall saw the opening of a fabulous permanent exhibition of famous local artist’s work, as well as a trail around ten locations in the town, painted by the artist who learned his craft while still a miner. The works picture everyday life and Digital Voice was privileged to produce an audio trail to complement this.

There is an installation at every location on the trail, including Cornish’s painting of the scene and a QR code taking you directly to the audio recorded about the painting and that spot. Each is a moving piece, bringing laughter, tears and sparking vivid memories of life in a colliery town. The trail can be found on the website

Project Coordinator Julie Nicholson said "it was great to watch the event audience laugh and be moved when listening to a preview of the audio trail created by our award-winning sound artist, Andy Ludbrook and media producer, Sue Drummond and it has been a honour to hear the memories of so many people from the lovely, friendly town of Spennymoor". We hope to explore more options to work them.
