There was a good turn out on Monday for the celebration event. Lovely harp music early on from Chris Knowles, and acoustic folk session towards the end of the evening. These pictures should give you a flavour of Keith’s exhibition which is on until 30th July, but please do come and have a good look at them in the flesh.
