Booking information

‘HOT METAL’ is an exhibition by Dr Kathy Davies on the social history of newspapers and printing on Coney Street, York featuring the memories and private collections of former staff of the Yorkshire Evening Press and the Herald Printers.

Newspapers were based on Coney Street, York for over 250 years and were fundamental to life in the city. These seemingly fleeting objects connected thousands of people, and their creation required the impressive skills of the printers, also based on Coney Street. The exhibition seeks to reconnect residents of York, news readers, industry people and scholars alike, with the history of this press community.
