Wonderful! I'd be in tears if that happened while I was out...those sorts of things make me emotional but in a good way! Excellent!

Fantastic - Rembrandt brought to life! Something like that might just make me love the Trafford Centre. hmm

anno I was in Carluccio's in the Trafford Centre a few years ago, when an impromptu performance from some opera singers was put on. A group was sitting at a table nearby and they were sharing snippets of different arias, when the waitress encouraged them to sing something. They moved on the the grand staircase nearby and their voices soared through the restaurant and beyond. People gathered from all over and we had half an hour of fabulous opera. The applause was deafening. It turned a happy meal into a great event. smile

Why am I never around when things like that happen?

We thought some jobsworth might come along and move them away, but they were left to sing. It was fabulous!

What a brilliant idea! I love the way they all managed to end up in the right place for the painting smile

Brilliant but can't imagine 'elf'n safety allowing anything like that in the UK - might bring on a heart attack or two, or someone might be pierced by a spear, or become entangled in a rope! wink
