8/9 Nov: Coventry visitors join the TSE Research Group

We met our visitors from Coventry for lunch at GB Pizza and then back to Turner Contemporary where they read a passage from the poem.

The TSE Research Group then discussed which works of art and artefacts have been agreed to be loaned to the gallery, and which are still to be agreed.  Everyone then split into groups to decide which of the items best fitted to the thematic groups.

After an overnight stay in Margate the visitors met with Elspeth and the Walking Group, for a walk around the key sites in Margate that relate to the poem.  It was another  cold and blustery day but the intrepid walkers were not put off.

Various stops were made en route including The Pie Factory Gallery and Margate Museum.  The museum provided valuable insights for the visitors into the Margate of the past and the interesting exhibit is which are held in the museum.

13 Oct: Pt. 3 ‘The Fire Sermon’ at Margate Museum

MARGATE MUSEUM WITH PROF. DAVID HERD

This again was a challenging environment to take images in.  The lighting was extremely poor in an old building with very high ceilings.

There was again a good turn out of people and some useful, interesting insights into the poem.  All the images I have been taking are also shared with the gallery and I have been sending copies of relevant images to the main speakers following each meeting so far.
