City Culture

  • Today I met my friend I at the Art Gallery for our regular catch up with each other's news and we chatted whilst making our way around a new exhibition showcasing the work of Roland Penrose and British Surrealism.

After leaving the gallery we made our way into town by taking a detour to see the progress being made on the new Sea City museum which is due to open at the start of April in time for 100th anniversary of the Titanic disaster.
It has been annouced in this last week that the council will be giving away a free entrance ticket to each household in the City. I would have gone along anyway to have a look around, but will definitely be taking advantage of this freebie.

That sounds like a nice day!
We've got lots of things going on in Liverpool too, for the anniversary of the Titanic.

Sounds like a great day. Would be good to see one of the exhibitions about the anniversary of the Titanic. I have always been fascinated(tho a little horrified) by the story.

What do you think of the building?
Is it an eyesore?

That sounds good! Nothing like a bit of culture to feed the soul. Our picnic is on this Sunday to protest about the cuts from the Arts Council to Sheffield Museums. Any protest that involves eating and I'm there! xx

What a lovely day out, it's nice to catch up with friends. Great freebie, it sounds like the type of museum I'd enjoy.

Oh lovely, I might have a look too. If you can make it on a Saturday at fareham museum from one till three thirty there is a craft group at the moment there's only three or four people but it is quite sweet. Xxxx
