To get the first years Up-and-Running, following a day of FD ethos and loads of paperwork the group headed off to Tate Liverpool for the Turner, Monet & Twombly exhibition - what a shame visitors cannot take images in the gallery. There was a fleeting appearance from one student who thought the challenge was too much and so decided not to remain onboard.
Wigan to Liverpool is an hour long journey on an ever increasingly busy train, squeezing through the standstone cut tunnels before emerging into the editors home town station . . . that have been the start of many-a-journey.

So it's time to stand an look. Three very different and yet unusually three quite similar exhibits on show. The editor visited the Turner exhibition at Tate Britain several years ago but hadn't viewed this work of Monet or seen anything by Twombly. It was all new for the group and it was great to see them wandering and discussing and considering . . . shame the day is over so quick.
