Lots to see displayed within the one-hundred year old hall and also floral displays to enjoy at All Saints Church which will also be holding a Celebration Church service tomorrow morning.

The exhibition in the hall will be open from 10 am to  4pm each day. My thanks to Martin Salter for sending the Virtual Museum a poster promoting the event.

Martin is well known to Bathonians and its thousands of tourists as the Regency gentleman on duty on the steps of the Jane Austen Centre on Gay Street. He gives everyone a cheery welcome.
