Wanted: Your Photos of Lockdown in Leicestershire

When the world slowed down, how did you respond?

Could you show your experience with a single photograph?

Inside Stories is a unique exhibition that will bring together 24 compelling photographs captured by residents across the county during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The large-scale images will reveal a glimpse into Leicestershire’s hidden lockdown moments – the personal pains, small wins and revelations that marked out this unique moment in time.

The exhibition will take place later this year at Winstanley House, providing an essential talking point and a chance to reflect on an unprecedented time which saw Leicestershire living through history.
