British Folk Art

Yesterday Tate Britain opened British Folk Art, the first major exhibition of its kind in the UK with nearly 200 items on display, from a figure of King Alfred made out of thatch to a ships figurehead. Ironically the cockerel used on the Exhibition Banner was made out of mutton bones by a French POW during the Napoleonic wars. The bad news is the price of admission: £11.30 (CLICK).

Looks quirky.. I think I would like it. And full price adult admission is £13.10, without donation. Would work out to be an expensive day if you saw a few of those!

Hi, Dion

There are so many excellent free art shows in London that I don't know how the big institutions get away with these prices. I guess it's the tourist trade.
