The world of show people and the larger-than-life productions they toured with over 200 years come to life in Showtime.

The exhibition, on loan from National Fairground Archive, is on display in The Children’s Hospital, Sheffield, until April 30, 2015.

The exhibition is part of Artfelt, The Children’s Hospital Charity’s art’s programme, which is committed to harnessing the healing power of art through transforming hospital spaces.
