a day of culture

The Gaugin exhibition has just opened at the Tate Modern and I missed the private view as Sheila wasn’t feeling too good. I get to see it though on the afternoon we meet with Ray and Di, Pete and Sue and Graham and Cheryl to attend the “Night Under the Stars” at the Festival Hall.

The exhibition is OK and I missed the crowds. Some dozen really good paintings to spend time over and the rest mostly polyfilla. The concert of classical music was for the London homeless – a organisation called the Passage for whom Diane did some volunteer literacy work. Rhys Griff Jones, whose father John Green knew, was a compere. Ray and Di don’t like him much and I could see how he can irritate.
