  1. Thanks for the organisation and planning. Both venues were terrific. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and cultural reward. My morning began registering as a reader in the British Library for the first time, All the staff were so helpful and friendly and genuinely interested in my specialism, background and choice of University. I’m now the proud owner of a 3 year membership card. Yay me! Post registration I explored the exhibition on the foundations of the English language with Elyse, It was difficult not to feel rich in the presence of the collection on display, we even took part in in interactive quiz… winning isn’t everything thankfully… My afternoon was spent travelling through time in Japan from 1000 BC – 2010 courtesy of the British Museum Mitsubishi sponsored collection in rooms Rooms 92-94. I found the Ceramic suggested by Jeremy and began a series of 16 Frames in a single shot image. exploring Time & Space in a inspiring setting. I’m Looking forward to revisiting both venues again. thanks again
