Today saw the first objects being installed at our exhibition. A great big thank you to Vikki Jessop from the British Museum for all her expertise and help installing the objects that we have on loan. Looking forward to day 2!
After months of waiting, the truck has arrived!

Vikki and I carefully place Bacchus into his new home for the next three months.

Part way through the installation: Bacchus has some new friends.
And to see the rest of the objects on loan from the British Museum, you will have to come to the exhibition, which starts this Saturday.
