An exhibition is currently being held at Bury Art Museum to celebrate the wonderful work of Victoria Wood.

Victoria was born in Bury, and lived locally whilst attending Bury Grammar School.  Some of Victoria’s school work will feature in the exhibition, including a story entitled ‘Pardon?’, exam certificates and school reports.

Early scripts, along with Victoria’s handwritten notes for the song and lyrics for ‘Fashion’ (the song performed during New Faces 1974) will be available to view.

Also on display will be: –

  • awards
  • photos
  • Kimberley’s friend’s yellow beret
  • costumes
  • scripts including ‘Wood & Walters’, ‘An Audience With’, ‘As Seen On TV’, Pat and Margaret will be on display.

Victoria was famously known for her BBC sketch Acorn Antiques and the comedy Dinnerladies.

The exhibition will run until September 2019.  Don’t miss the chance for this rare opportunity to view such amazing pieces.
