Compton Verney Model Presentation

On the 17th of August, Simon Costin and Mellany Robinson travelled up to Compton Verney to present the scale model for the forthcoming fireworks exhibition. The team from CV were shown every aspect of the design and the way in which the exhibition had been curated. Visitors to the show can expect to see how our November 5th celebrations fit into the wider calendar of fire festivals, such as those at Ottery St Mary and Stonehaven for example, as well as being able to enjoy the remarkable collection of Maurice Evans, firework collector extraordinaire. The meeting went extremely well and now work on the display cases, framing and text panels has begun.
