Archers Arcadia Exhibition

Roll up, roll up!

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, it's show time as David Archer presents his intriguing artworks, sensational sideshows and amazing interactive spectacles.

Inspired in the tradition of Victorian and Edwardian amusements from seaside piers, circuses and travelling fairs, Archers' artworks provide an escape into fantasy and gives humorous insight into the human condition.

Pull handles, wind cranks or push levers to bring these artworks to life. Dare to gaze into peepholes and be drawn into magical dioramas. See the life-size water powered swine, or even have your fortune told by a mechanical Gypsy!

Roll up, roll up!
