Fancy checking out an art exhibition in a former Kendal Mint Cake factory? Of course you do.

This summer, Cross Lane’s exhibition Auto – Destruct is a group show seeking to “examines themes of our fascination and capacity to be seduced by world-changing inventions and technologies that may or may not lead to improvements”. The works take a look at vehicles, such as cars, as devices of both liberation and destruction.
