‘Tracking Forgiveness’, a photographic journey of The Railway Man, concludes its showing at The Gymnasium Gallery, Berwick this weekend, with more than 1500 people visiting the exhibition since it opened in January.

The exhibition features production shots and behind-the-scenes photos, as pictured above, taken during the filming of The Railway Man biopic which took place in Berwick, Edinburgh, Queensland and Thailand in 2012, alongside a number of wartime artefacts belonging to Eric Lomax which have been kindly loaned by the Lomax family.

James Lowther of Berwick Visual Arts said: “This has been one of our most popular exhibitions to date with an excellent feedback from all those who have visited the exhibition.

“We are grateful to the Lomax family for loaning us a number of Eric’s wartime artefacts, and visitors have been extremely moved to be able to see these.”

Many of the photographs and artefacts on display will now travel to the Royal Signals Museum in Dorset where a permanent display about Eric Lomax is being organised.

The exhibition on the 2nd Floor of Berwick YHA on Dewars Lane is open every day until Sunday, March 2, from 11am-5pm with free admission.
