Now that's a mixture that seems very tempting. Might just make the trip.

Thanks for the info, Tim.

It does sound interesting, TY Mr Mud. I have a leaving doo for x2 tomorrow :(. I am going the next Friday at 6:00pm to see the Shoe Exhibition (£12) and hopefully show those who have not been before Tipu's Tiger, The oldest dateable Carpet, Trade Beads and as much ceramics as you can show a 'normal' folk till they get bored and start asking silly questions.

I did summon up the energy and went along to the V&A this evening and glad I did.

Spent time looking at the pottery on the top floor and listening to the music but also saw the "Tower of Babel" installation that is taken down on Monday.

To explain what that is I quote from the V&A website, "A major sculptural installation created for the V&A by artist Barnaby Barford, The Tower of Babel tells an array of stories about our capital city, our society and economy, and ourselves as consumers. Standing an imposing six metres high, the Tower comprises 3000 bone china shops, each one unique, each depicting a real London shop photographed by the artist. At its base the shops are derelict, while at its pinnacle are the crème-de-la-crème of London’s exclusive boutiques and galleries."

Upon asking if there were any shops in Greenwich featured I was surprise to find that the old Harlequin Gallery where I was for 10 years was there. All individual shops were for sale but the Harlequin had be bought for £210.

I spent 30 minutes or so searching the bottom third of the structure looking for it without success. It was only when I looked higher that I finally saw it.

The artist was there tonight explaining that as you went higher up the tower the shops got more exclusive. I didn't say anything but did wonder why, if that was the case, the Harlequin Gallery was three quarters of the way up the tower.

Artistic tosh, I suppose.
