A planned exhibition of work by celebrated pop artist Andy Warhol at the Peterborough Museum has been cancelled.

The Artists Rooms on Tour was set to visit the Priestgate attraction later this year.

However, the exhibition has now been cancelled, with a replacement display announced.

A spokesman for Vivacity, which runs the museum, said: “Vivacity Culture and Leisure are pleased to announce that the Ealand Warwick Collection will now  be exhibited in the City Gallery space from November.

“This is a change to our previous exhibition programme which included works from Andy Warhol as part of the ARTIST ROOMS On Tour collection. “Following a final inspection, it was requested that some structural changes be made to the building before the exhibition was to be installed. 

“Unfortunately, the period between the inspection and installation didn’t allow enough time to make these changes, so we will be showing a replacement exhibition.”

The Ealand Warwick Collection is made up of works from nationally renowned artists including Patrick Heron, Sir Terry Frost, Dame Elizabeth Frink and many others, and represents some of the best British art of the 50s and 60s.

On show from November, the collection gives a glimpse into the unique world of Tom Ealand and Richard Warwick; their passion for art, friendships with contemporary British artists, and the resulting legacy of their collection.
