Just a quick note to tell you that Barbara and I went to see the Magna Carta piece at the Whitworth Art Gallery today. It is an amazing piece of work, worked mainly by prisoners , some famous people and embroiderers from the EG. Its very hard to describe but the embroideries are exquisite. I would strongly recommend a visit. The Whitworth has just completed a massive redevelopment. It has increased in size, has a very attractive cafe and new areas to discover. Bad news, no parking in front so you need off road at the side AND to our displeasure we found the Oxford Rd outside the Gallery was closed for a few yards. We had to find a detour but not too bad. Check opening times etc with the Whitworth but do go if you possibly can.
