THIS WAS AWESOME! That's how The LEGO Song Went, It is also a great description of how this day was. The Final Day of my Exhibition was also the First Ever 'Comic Book Heroes & Villains Day' At Forge Mill Museum. It took a lot of time and Effort to put together & the Forge Mill Staff and Volunteers were fantastic.
With an Event like this it is always tricky. After a week of Sunshine, this day wasn't. Windy, sometimes cold & Blowing a Gale, not located in a main centre and primarily outside. Yet we had Over 800 People Come through the Doors!
My Good Friend and Fellow Marvelite Julian Seager came down to join me, to sign photos & Drink beer. (Previous night only of course)
We were Joined by the UK Garrison Chiefly among them, Darth Vader himself, with his troopers, Tie-Fighter Pilots & Sand People getting in the Mix.
Batman & Cat-woman joined them in trying to break up the MARVEL Party
& a Magical Spiderman to boot!
No don't ask or I will have to explain..
There were loads of Goodies for the kids,
Comic book stands, The Superhero LEGO Room, Play Area, Superhero Bouncy Castle.
Even the Storm Troopers got in on the Act by Pushing one of The Monkeys from Planet of the Apes
on the swing.
I'm still waiting for that photo to be sent by the way!
What was great was to see so many kids dressed up as their favourite Superheroes having a blast. Although I was primarily located in the Museum amongst my Exhibition works, Sketching Chatting & Signing throughout the day. With plenty of helpers & volunteers at hand I got the chance to get out & speak to people & see what a great time everyone was having.
The memory day will stay with me for a long time. to come, & the hot-dog.
The hot-dog was great..
