Happy New Year. It's ready!
I'm delighted to report that the plaque to Joseph Haydn we have commissioned is ready.
Over the last six weeks it has been hand-made by Ned Heywood and his team at Heritage Ceramics, who specialise in this work. Ned kindly photographed the various stages of production for us to share with you. You can see this series of of photographs that have resulted in this handsome plaque on the news feed of our website (haydnsocietyofgb.co.uk/news).
We are now talking to surveyors and builders about the details of mounting the plaque at No 18 Great Pulteney St and awaiting delivery of the object itself to us.
We have spent some time during a busy December ordering the rewards, drawing up lists of those of you who are to be recorded in the commemorative booklet and writing to you all to get some feedback about your involvement in the fundraising process.
We will let you know as soon as the installation and unveiling date is confirmed and hope that as many of you as possible will be able to come and see it in situ, either on unveiling day itself or when you are next in London.
