A NEW virtual digitally-collaborated exhibition has gone live on The Atkins Building’s website just a day ago (December 7), which explores the long-standing relationship of Atkins and The Great Meeting Unitarian Chapel.

The digital project, named “Connections: The Atkins Family and The Great Meeting Chapel”, is a photographic exhibition and tells the shared story between the Unitarian Chapel and the former Bond Street-based hosiery building.

The friendship between the two historic Hinckley buildings spans back an impressive and whopping amount of 298 years, starting from back in 1722.

Chapel volunteer Mike Everton has independently conducted the research for this virtual event. The supplied photographs have kindly been provided by Historic England, Mike Everton, and the Meeting Unitarian Chapel’s photo archive.

Like all other past digital exhibitions held on the Atkins website, once it has ended it shall simply be moved to the ‘Previous exhibitions’ area of the site where visitors will still be able to view the exhibition. To check out the newly-launched exhibition, simply click here.
