Talented photographers drew in the crowds at a popular exhibition.

Around 800 people visited the photographic display which was held at the Venue in Manor Walks shopping centre, Cramlington.

Working with Cramlington Camera Club, the talented photographers created a week-long exhibition with the help of the Venue.

Director Mick Harland said: “It has been a pleasure to be able to create such a much needed and useful centre for the community.

“Once again the Manor Walks team and Digital Community Youth have offered a showcase outlet for local talent to be viewed and shared amongst their community.

“We are proud to be able to continue our work with the youth of the area, and including arts and culture, was a natural step forward for us, we look forward to continuing that work with our new exhibition space and community-focused Venue.

“Our plans for October and November include exhibitions for local artists and our youth management team.”

The youth-led Venue will open its doors in October on a full-time basis, with various community projects being delivered daily to the visitors of the shopping centre.

Activities will include free IT advisory and information service, a skills day for local artisans and tradesmen, youth days, and market days where local crafters will turn the Venue into a hand-made market with products from soap to handbags and hand-made cards to jewellery.
