You will really like it, Amy. It wasnt quite as big as I thought it would be but there was more than enough to fill a whole day. The Quad gallery had lots of photographs and some of the galleries had video installations. One was a slideshow of Peter Dench photographs and that took us 30mins+ to watch. All the other stuff was within walking distance, mostly empty shops that had been taken over and used as galleries and the other place was Derby Museum. Magum had an outside space which has some great photos. I bought the offical catalogue but would warn you it was £24.50 and I am not sure it was worth the money. Its softback and quite small. I wanted it to remember some of the names whose work I really liked and I suppose if you take into account all the galleries were free entry its not that bad.
