You’ll hear not only about those new exhibitions but also about the history of the gallery spaces, the philosophy of Vic and his team and his plans for the future. You’ll also meet the artist Doug Binder – one of Dean Clough’s resident artists – who talks about his life and work. Vic is a man who is not short for words so sit back and enjoy an hour in his entertaining company…
