“We’re very proud to be collaborating with the venue for our first official exhibition.

 

“Phil’s photographs look amazing, and you can check them out until Tuesday 27 August (the day after the festival) at the museum – which is also home to loads of great items relating to the history of Thame and the surrounding area. Admission is free!”
