"Gory stories, we do that..."
Well, there was no 'talking rat', but yesterday saw the grand re-opening of Abingdon Museum after an extensive (and fantastic) renovation. And it was very appropriate that actor Martha Howe-Douglas (star of CBBC's Horrible Histories) did the ribbon cutting. After all, Abingdon does have some gruesome things in its past...
Backstreeter has a great collection of photos from the opening ceremony here.
We were preparing for her signing copies of some of the Horrible Histories titles which took place straight afterwards. Most popular titles were 'Flaming Olympics' and 'Oxford', appropriately!
Despite some 'historic' downpours, there was a great turnout - and major kudos to the music performers who performed brilliantly despite heavy rain on the market square.
