EarthBound launched in the Summer of 2022 in a purpose built exhibition structure in a former limestone quarry at The National Stone centre in Derbyshire. Building a temporary exhibition space in this amazing environment was achieved with the kind and bedrock support of the Institute of Quarrying and Longcliffe Quarries and a dedicated and skilled team, who worked tirelessly to create the EarthBound venue and hang the show ready for its launch in the Summer of 2022. A very fitting place to send EarthBound out into the World, and for people to experience the show for the first time, in an old limestone quarry going back to nature! Over that summer it attracted thousands of visitors of all ages. The visitor book was full of over 30 pages of comments, really lovely for the EarthBound team to get such a response to a story of rock, earth and place. Thank you for all the incredible support! We’re looking forward to sharing the EarthBound story with many more people as the show tours into 2024-25!
