It was lovely to se so many members at South Shields on Thursday, and that everyone seemed to enjoy the exhibition.
As you probably know, The Lindisfarne Gospels will be on display at the Laing Gallery for two months in the Autumn. As some of you may remember from when they were displayed at Durham , admission was restricted, and the great number of people wanting to visit meant it became quite difficult to obtain tickets. It is often possible to get odd tickets at the last minute, but most members seem to prefer going as a group. I have managed to buy 20 tickets before they go on general release. The cost is £7. Unfortunately Thursdays are recommended for school parties, so I have had to choose a different day, Friday, 23rd September, 11am-11.30am. I hope the change of day doesn’t prove to be too much of a problem for you.
It would be helpful if you could reply, letting me know if I should reserve one of the tickets for you. I can collect the money at the next Monthly Meeting.
