Sir Peter Blake and The Museum of Everything...don't miss out!

After extending its run in December, The Museum of Everything is sadly set to close its doors next weekend, much to the disappointment of its many fans! The museum is currently hosting Exhibition 3, an impressive display of the weird and wonderful from none other than Sir Peter Blake's extensive private collection. The 2 floor studio in Primrose Hill is filled to the brim with curiosities in what makes for a charming, nostalgic and often very funny experience.

Highlights include, Ted Wilcox and his embroidered pin up girls, Seaside shell mania, Walter Potter's fascinating Victorian Taxidermy (boxing squirrels for crying out loud!) and Arthur Miller's hand made miniature fun fair. Now, if that's not enough to intrigue, then you are obviously numb to curiosity! But believe me, you will kick yourself if you miss out on this. It is one of the best exhibitions to come out of last year and will leave you feeling up-beat, inspired and dying for a cuppa to discuss your favourite bits ...cue cute little coffee shop at the exit! Hopefully it will be back soon...
Never have I ever been so disappointed...another sign actually threatened death...eek!
