Spotlight On: L.S. Lowry’s Love of Berwick

Tours and talks

Daily, Berwick Museum and Art Gallery

11am FREE

Join us everyday and discover the stories behind L. S. Lowry's connection to Berwick and love of the town

Learn more about the stories behind the two artworks by L.S. Lowry on a free Spotlight Tour.

Enjoy a bite-size talk which will introduce you to the story of L. S. Lowry’s leisure time in Berwick, the artworks he made here, and how holiday makers have found fun and inspiration here.

L.S. Lowry frequently visited Berwick-Upon-Tweed from the mid-1930s until the 1970s, and painted over 30 works depicting the town and its people.

Join us to dive into the paintings, and the holidays of the man who made it.

‘Beach Scene’ is now part of the permanent collection at Berwick Museum and Art Gallery and a poignant reminder of the artist’s love for the Northumberland town. It was purchased for Museums Northumberland’s collections in 2019 with the support of Art Fund (with a contribution from the Wolfson Foundation), the Arts Council England/V&A Purchase Grant Fund, The Friends of Berwick and District Museum and Archives, and the Guild of Freemen of the town of Berwick-upon-Tweed.

‘Old Berwick’ is on loan from HM Government.
