HUMBUG!

The following pictures are from our ceremony on 1st March 2010 to celebrate the opening of the Humbug! exhibition. Humbug! is the first exhibition to use the newly-restored Western Bank Library Exhibition Gallery. Thanks to a generous grant from the Wolfson Foundation, a major bequest from a former graduate, and many smaller donations to the University's Alumni Foundation, this attractive space has been restored to the condition it was in when the Grade II listed building opened in 1959, and upgraded with 21st century systems.

Open to all, daily from 9am to 9pm weekdays and 10am to 6pm weekends excluding holidays, the exhibition runs up until May 27th. In addition we also have a limited edition brochure to document the event - please contact the NFA for further details.

These images are copyright to Ian Spooner photography, and we thank him for permission to use them on our website.
