The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Birmingham, England stopped by the museum on Friday. They were in town with the Birmingham Royal Ballet as part of the 14th Annual Virginia Arts Festival. Colin and I were delighted to give them a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum.
They were both such lovely guests; I got carried away and may have rambled a bit.
The news team from WVEC followed us through the Morning Room while I bugged my eyes and waved my hands in the air. I can’t seem to find the segment on youtube, so here is a video of the Lord Mayor meeting Burma Star veterans instead:
[Colin is working tirelessly to source the actual clip from WAVY — I’ll keep you updated to the minute, as I’m sure you are all on the edge of your seats.]
Many thanks to the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress for taking the time to visit us. Please come back very soon — next time we will be sure to have tea and biscuits at the ready.
