We were there today. Missed the Stephen Briggs talk but it was a really display of his works. Mandi & I enjoyed it & we may go again with the kids at some point.

Very much enjoyed the exhibition. Quite a few items were new to me and it was good to see many of Paul's original paintings and sketches.
I must admit I felt something as I stood in front of Paul's bust of Terry. The detail was so perfect and I felt I could converse with the man himself.
The enthusiasm of the volunteers was infectious. I was bombarded with Interesting Facts.
The screens on Terry's desk are automated; emails arrive, typing, and pop-up messages including one from Bernard.

Just spent a few days in Sailsbury went to the Museum on Tuesday as they had a kids event ( and I am the biggest kid I know ) helped the Lady set her stall up,and helped her supervise a bunch of children make shambles .Mine is two lolly sticks tied together, with a plastic pumpkin, two dried leaves a large red button and one glow in the dark bug dangling from it.
I had fun, and told her a few intresting bits about Terry and his books, recommened the Tiffany books for her children, and chatted with one other Mum who thought the books would be too scary for her children ( I said if she had read them Red riding hood or Hansel and Getel , Terry was funnier with more morals and a lot of cats )
Wednesday we went to the Museum to see the Terry Exibit, it is great, had one or two tearful moments, saw the reply Terry got from Tolkien as a kid, and loved every bit of it, from his desk, with cat hole, and the quotes and art work.
Loved the noisy note eating post box, and read a few of the notes pinned next to it from a few of the usual suspects! ( you know who you are! ) posted our own, and bought a print by Paul kidby of a gnome riding a squirrel.

Wednesday night we went back to see Paul Kidby do a talk about his work, he was very funny and warm, and has had quite an intresting career, from making false teeth, to graphic art on Umbongo juice cartons, and rice pudding tins, then he worked on front covers for early PC games and magazines, and how he became a Discworld artist was sheer fluke! ( he gave Terry some pencil sketches in a sighning que )

Came home yesterday , got a lot of laundry and some fond memories of the Cathedral and Terry, and the new sketches of his statue are impressive ( with added greebo! ) :meow:

I like to imagine there's a conversation going on in the Wilkins' household right now.

"It would look lovely there!"
"No."
"The colours are just right for the lounge!"
"No."
"It would be like a tapestry in a medieval castle!"
"No."
"It's an amazing artwork!"
"No."
<Repeat ad infinitum>

I had a very similar conversation when Julia came home to find I'd rescued the Colour of Magic coffin from being abandoned in a hotel lobby
"Why is there a coffin in my* lounge?"
"I thought I could put shelves inside and use it for all our** discworld books"
"No"
"Or put some glass shelves in it, and neon lights, as a really interesting cocktail cabinet"
"No"
"Or ... "
"No"
So it's still in the garage
Although my latest suggestion, using it as a planter for her*** herbaceous border, got a "maybe" ...

* HER lounge, eh? Julia never could get the hang of possessive pronouns
** Here, demonstration of the correct possessive pronoun use
*** I do not venture into the leafy green exterior of the house. It's 100% her territory. Except for the raspberries
