We were thrilled to meet everyone who joined us for our Exhibition Open Day at The Met on Saturday. Despite the wet weather folks kept turning up to view the artwork, hear the readings and sample the cakes and biscuits baked from a cookbook published in 1916!
It was lovely to welcome the mayor of Bury and her Consort – she was fantastic and so appreciative of the hard work and talent which has gone into creating such a unique and striking art exhibition.
We would like to express a huge thank you to all our volunteers who made the event so special – your dedication and support is always appreciated. Also thanks to Oliver for his entertaining renditions of poetry and prose. All of the pieces read out have provided inspiration for the artwork on display.
Finally, a big thank you to Wendy and her team from Delicious at The Fusiliers; the cakes, biscuits and lemonade went down a treat with our visitors – all tasted absolutely scrumptious!
