Starting to organise events again for those who are on my old mailing list (if you are not on that – I’ll be cleaning up the system shortly), so sometime this Summer I now have a day at York planned for a “behind the scenes” tour of York Minster and a visit to a Mediaeval hall with lunch. I’ve been to York Minster before – but this return trip will be a bit more special. Just sorting out the dates etc first.

For myself, I just managed to get tickets to a private viewing of a London Underground poster exhibition which is opening in the Transport Museum in October – which should be exciting.

Another one to keep an eye out for if you can get Wednesday morning off work on the 18th June is the annual Cart Marking ceremony in the City of London. This is an ancient ceremony where the city livery company, the Honourable Company of Carmen who had a monopoly on carts and wagons in the city would mark each cart as road worthy each year. Today, they no longer have a monopoly on controlling vehicles in the City, but the annual cart marking ceremony continues, and a procession of around 40 vehicles (most are historic) will process through Guildhall Yard from 10:30 onwards.

I’ll be along there with camera in tow.
