Three days to go

Three days to go till the big event, and everything proceeding well. All places are taken.

Sorry that we have never given you the ‘penultimate blog’ promised last time – some of the ideas for that can still come later.

So this is the update on the final arrangements. I’ve taken the bullet points from the YSP website and expanded  them a bit.

  • Your price includes refreshments during the afternoon, but not lunch which is available in the YSP resataurant.   Participants get free parking – just check your car registration number in at the information desk and then you can drive out free(ly).
  • Ticket includes 10% discount to spend on the day in the YSP Shop, Restaurant and Cafe. Whoopee doo, remember this.
  • The full programme of  speakers will be available to download soon.  We hope.  Or if not the full programme will be available on paper on the day.
  • This event includes an  opportunity to sit at sunset in James Turrell’s tranquil Deer Shelter Skyspace at YSP.   Experience the transition from day to night through an aperture in the roof, offering you a heightened vision of the Yorkshire sky in a place of contemplation and  revelation.
  • Space for the viewing is limited to 25/30 people, bookable at a first come first served basis at the door. This means that we shall welcome you on arrival and ask you to decide whether you want to go to the sitting that day. ( It will finish about 7.15).    There are sixty people in the afternoon but some of them will have been before, some will need to get home quickly, and others might prefer to come on another day; we hope that under 30 people will decide that this is their only chance.
  • But there is to be another chance for disappointed ticket holders – you will get free entry if you reserve a place at the sitting at sunset event for Museums at Night on May 17 2014. And you could also book a ticket for a friend who is not at the study afternoon.

And what is the picture at the top?  That is after the ending of the first Quaker meeting for worship in the Deer Shelter Skyspace.  Note the subsidiary lighting at the top of the back rest, showing up well in this picture.

See you on Saturday, or back here afterwards.  Eventually most of the programme will be uploaded to the net with links from this site, so you can see what happened.
