Illuminating the past – Enhancing the present – Inspiring the future

40years: exhibition a great success

The exhibition at the Beaney has now closed. It was a job well done and successfully showed the extent and quality of the Trust’s work to a wide audience, as the many appreciative comments from among the 7,000+ visitors show. Here are a few:

‘Excellent, very informative overview of CAT’s work and the significance of its achievements – long may it continue.’
‘The CAT exhibition manages the almost impossible – a very successful snapshot of 40 years work. Well done, I hope it has inspired a new generation to become involved and hands on!’
‘Small but beautiful! A lot of very well put together, informative displays/info. Perfect complement to library and museum. Thanks!’
‘A well composed exhibition. Really great to see some of your special finds face to face. A fine body of work the effort shows in the finished product. Well done everyone.’

The Friends manned the exhibition for the vast majority of the 249 hours of opening. They did a fantastic job, the shifts ran like clockwork and they enjoyed themselves. Staff at the Beaney were also impressed by the whole event and it was a pleasure to liaise with those front-of-house staff who supported in various ways during the run.
