The Countdown is Over!

08 July 2015

Region: London

Today’s the day that we’ve been waiting for – the official opening of the Bleeding London Exhibition.  We have a star-studded line-up for the evening, including Society President Derek Birch ASIS Hon FRPS and Bleeding London author, Geoff Nicholson.

Yesterday was busy on the preparation front.  Jonathan and Natasha were at City Hall bright and early to hang part of the exhibition in the Café, with the other boards being placed tomorrow - some in the function area and some at the parallel party at The Brigade.  Members of First Tuesday and some of the Bleeding Londoners were the first to see the exhibition (or at least this part of it), and we hope they left suitably impressed!

Meanwhile, filming was also taking place – an international press agency, as well as London, Cine gathering footage for future videos for the RPS website. 

Alas, the tube strike’s going ahead, but we’re still hoping for a good turnout and if you missed Judy’s alternative travel guide yesterday, you can download it from here.

Look forward to seeing you later (either at City Hall or at The Brigade) ... and don't forget, one lucky BL'er will be going home with an Olympus camera after the results of the Bonus Points Leagure are announced!
