Bob Hope Exhibition

Yesterday BBC News released a video to coincide with the opening of Bob Hope: A World of Laughter, which celebrates the life of the British-born Hollywood actor and comedian. The BBC's Katerina Mo interviewed Linda Hope, Bob Hope's daughter, while they toured the exhibition (CLICK). It's an amusing video, but the BBC forgot to mention the exhibition venue! Never fear; Coxsoft Art is here. The exhibition is in the Berkeley Gallery, Greenwich Heritage Centre, Artillery Square, Royal Arsenal, Woolwich, SE18 4DX (CLICK). It was curated by the World Golf Hall of Fame and Museum with the support of the Bob and Dolores Hope Foundation. It runs until 28 October and admission is free. Ignore all those London 2012 Festival tourist ripoffs. This freebie is an exhibition Londoners can take their kids to and enjoy. Above: Linda Hope at the exhibition. Left: a photo of Bob Hope. In case you're wondering why Bob had an American accent, his family emigrated to America when he was only four years old.

Finally something to go and see during the Olympics that isn't a rip-off. Most of the other exhibitions are charging the earth to make money from the unsuspecting tourists and poor old Londoners. We only paid for the Olympics and then we have to pay again to get away from them.

Absolutely. We need something amusing to take our minds off all the Olympic disasters.
