The latest exhibition from the BROOKESart team - the BROOKEStock festival:

"What would a music festival made up of world class musicians look like in Barnsley? Come along to the Cooper Gallery this season when a vast array of bands old and new can be spotted playing in familiar locations in and around the town. In this delightful and playful exhibition of new work, pop artist Terry Brookes takes us to this imaginary gig, a must for music and art fans of all ages. All You Need Is!"

13th December 2019 - 7th March 2020. Festival gear optional. 3 months of Music, Peace, Love and Art.

The BROOKEStock festival was first mentioned in the "when the Beatles came to Barnsley" exhibition, when photos from Jimi's performance in Locke Park were displayed, along with a replica of his famous hand-painted flying V guitar.

This exhibition brings the full BROOKEStock festival experience up-to-date. Grab your poncho, tent and wellies and join the fun.

Seagull Ted is reborn as "Hippy Ted" and is resplendent in his grooviest tie-died T shirt and wellies in the Cooper Gallery windows.

Terry Brookes admires the Cooper window display.
