Gloucester History Day

Gloucester is a city that is rich in history, and a lot of it is right in front of your face, you just don’t realise it is there.

Today was Gloucester History day, run out of the Cathedral, with other events at the Folk Museum and the City Museum.

We went to the Cathedral and there was some very interesting art pieces and exhibits. The BBC had put together packs and stuff which was really good and some of the elements were really clever.

For me, the most intense piece was this one:

The Photo doesn’t really do it justice, you have to go and see it, the way it shows the pain radiating from the body is incredible.

The pice with the Bren guns and the helmet was very clever and ‘simple’.

Ellie making her Princess hat.

These were a few of the papier mache hands, I thought they were very clever, and something we could repeat with the kids sometime.  Though how to get the initial shape could be interesting.

This statue was outside (obviously) and was just huge.  It reminded me of the WEEE piece in the Eden Project .

The whole day was a Home Educators dream, and there were a lot of Home Ed Families there.  Its a pity its only on for one day, but I believe the art pieces are there for a while, they are well worth a look.

    Can I just point out that only 1 of your pictures show the BBC History Day! The majority are of the Crucible 2010 exhibition. Which is fab, and everyone should go see it, but what about the history day, huh??!!

    Well, if someone had put new batteries in the camera before we went out, then maybe there would be some more, who was in charge of the camera?

    Blah, blah, blah! At least put a link to the Crucible website??
