TUESDAY 28 OCTOBER 08 open keyboard PIANO NIGHT new art in the library JAN new art in the vaults GRASSY NOEL 081028.scan0001.jpg THE CIRCUS OF DESOLATION EXHIBITION October 28 - November 2 The People's Bank Vaults, The Foundry Grazzy Noel presents the once in a life-time opportunity to attend The Circus of Desolation Exhibition. The Exhibition celebrates the ancient Diwali and Samhain Festivals of Light, The Great Re-Awakening. It is the time of year of great festivities and the beginning of the Celtic new-year, a very appropriate time to be getting rid of the Texan Bush Boys, "Trick or Treat". This exciting and fearsome exhibition will be opened by La Matrona Luna's monologue performed by the fantastic actress Suzanne Harbison. In the 2nd Chamber of the very highly secure People's Bank Vault will be, for your delectation, the world's exclusive Golden Pumpkin Skull, on view on certain days only, and the world's first Smarty Embedded Pumpkin Skull both to be auctioned at The Foundry (cut out the auction house) for the predicted price of $150 Million Dollars a Skull. Other Work on exhibit are recently discovered cave paintings said to date back to the last Great Depression. The whole show will be accompanied by the audio play Le Cirque de Desolation which has the deep sonorous booming voice of the wonderful Mark Rathmell and the dulcet tones of the brilliant Brian Coleman. This Show would not be possible without the sponsorship of The People's Bank to whom we are eternally grateful; a Very Big Thank You to Pete's it's Current CEO. http://www.myspace.com/lecirquetrilogy

The regeneration. A fine blend of art, film and a campaign to mark coalmines on maps.
