A new exhibition in Durham is aiming to highlight the experiences older people who spend long periods of time alone.

'Home Alone' has been created by artist Sharon Bailey who has been visiting lonely people for the last eight months as part of her art project. She showcases a story based on the conversations she had with people living in Newcastle, East Durham and Gateshead.

The exhibition includes recordings from people across the North East, as well as diary entries, pictures and objects - all leant to the artist by the people she visited.

The exhibition will be shows at Durham Town Hall throughout October 2020.
