Open Studio Day: salute to Ned…

Last Sunday we marked the anniversary of Ned’s hanging (11th November 1880) with our annual Prisoners of the Crown Open Studio Day (once a year, on the closest Sunday.)

We’ve kept things pretty low key this year, but that notwithstanding the date stands as the signal opportunity to celebrate both our workshops and our joie de Neddie.

It was a glorious day; all the critters were on duty…

A very, very special thanks to Charlie who volunteered for a long weekend of preparatory toil…

…and to Glenn who took the mugshots (managing to avoid having his own taken we notice!)…

 

We had a lovely line-up of visitors, including some dangerous recidivists and a few who pulled ‘a La Groppa’ and baulked the parade (clearly on the lam from the law!)

So, another year down. And for those of you who have sent messages of regret and apology, never fear – it’ll happen all over again in a mere twelve months time!

Mark your dance cards: Sunday 11th November 2018.
