A new interactive exhibition at Leeds City Museum will take visitors through four seasons in one day.

For All Seasons, which opens tomorrow, features an array of displays including a giant sandcastle, indoor tree, traditional sledge and hook-a-duck pond.

They will be surrounded by exhibits illustrating the different ways spring, summer, autumn and winter shape and influence the world, such as wildlife, ceramics, paintings and historic fashions.

During the exhibition, the museum will be the temporary home to 
stunning watercolours by Leeds artist John Atkinson Grimshaw, who painted beautiful images of his home city.

His work will be on loan from Leeds Art Gallery, ensuring the paintings remain accessible to the public while the gallery is closed for refurbishment.

The team behind the new project: L-R: Jason Shipstone,  Head of R&D, Drax Group; Caspar Schoolderman,  Director of Engineering, C-Capture Ltd; Andy Koss,  CEO Drax Power; Prof Christopher Rayner,  Technical Director, C-Capture Ltd; Carl Clayton,  Research and Innovation Engineer, Drax Group.
