The Ballad of British Folklore

On the 2nd August almost 700 people came along to the Christie's Late evening to celebrate our exhibition, The Ballad of British Folklore. We were delighted with the turn out as people queued to have their books signed by photographers, Homer Sykes and Henry Bourne, listened to Sam Lee singing some songs from his new album, 'The Fade in Time' and made Green Man masks with Rob Flowers, as the Boss Morris troupe kept the crowds entertained. We would really like to thank the whole team at Christie's South Kensington for all their support and hard work hosting the evening and to all the people who came along with offers of help, we very much appreciate it. The show runs until 2nd September, 2016.
