If you go down to Theatre Square today for the Big Opening, you're in for a big surprise

This evening sees the opening of The Post Office in Pictures exhibition courtesy of the British Postal Museum and Archive.
The private view is between 5-pm this evening, the exhibition runs until 5 November and is open from 11am - 5pm daily Monday- Saturdays.
The big surprise is as the result of consultations reported earlier in the year, we now have plants in beds. They look superb, incorporate seating areas between and amidst the plantings, and will be watered by a hose pipe attached to a tap situated just inside Artsite door. I have already seen an SBC employee engaged in watering.
The following photos show the bed outside Artsite door being assembled by 10 (?) people, and the resulting bed when finished:

 It was difficult to show all the people engaged in working in this small area because they shielded each other
 These are the groups responsible for the regeneration of Theatre Square.
 Two views of the bed outside Artsite with posties in the background.

 This bed is directly outside the Wyvern Theatre, I was lucky with the three men walking behind the bed with their shopping.
This bed is beside the Wyvern Theatre. As you can see, it's definitely worth a look, it may not be what we suggested at the consultation afternoon, but it looks good.
