Currently they are in third place, with only 15%. Please take 30 seconds to vote for the Horniman for this exhibition.

Thanks for supporting this. Increasing the percentage of votes by 9 points in a single day is a great start and if others join in and vote we will easily overtake the two top choices.

Well used online forums can make a huge difference in online polls like this.

Don't forget to ask your family to vote as well. As long as you have seperate email addresses, different people can each cast a vote.

It's a shame this has been moved to The Lounge. Is it not considered close enough to ED to be in ED businesses? I'm sure a lot of people in ED use the Horniman, maybe it could go in the 'What's On' section if it's not felt to suit the business section.

I had to drag the Woman - felt a little grubby afterwards but it's all in the name of art

Reports on other forum are of Horniman reaching 27%, still third place, so we need to get many more votes before the close of voting on Tuesday. We have moved up 12 percentage points, so we are closing the gap with the joint leaders who have fallen to 36%.

Please also consider sharing this on Facebook by going to http://www.facebook.com/hornimanmuseumandgardens to encourage your friends and neighbours to support our local museum.

The last project this company did (the Rain Room) finished last week at the Barbican. It was free but there was a permanent 2 hour queue to get in, except for the final weekend when it was longer than that. I've no idea if it was good or not because I was put off by the queues and didn't see it.


This is our chance to have an exhibit on our doorstep, at the Horniman. It's worth 2 minutes of your time to register and vote, so please.

Use the OP's link at the top of the thread to vote.

It's a bit confusing at the end when you have to drag and drop the icon thingy, but please persevere.

Great news - The Horniman won!

"rAndom International?s recent immersive installation Rain Room at Barbican?s Curve Gallery had visitors queuing for hours. For Museums at Night they will be weaving their magic at The Horniman Museum and Gardens whose 1,615 votes secured a live art event with an installation, music and storytelling inspired by the museum, garden spaces and natural history collections."

    • The Peckham Coal Line proposals (which frankly I had forgotten the details of, and never knew the council had made any contribution toward) were an interesting idea worth exploring at the time. A £10k contribution to a feasibility study that was mostly paid by private donations is pretty good value. Obviously those struck by #southwarkderangementsyndrome will say this thing the council did 8 years ago is literally the end of Western civilisation. https://www.peckhamcoalline.org/blog/feasibility-study-1-year-on

    • Another to consider is if when you purchased them, the chicken was kept in a sealed plastic bag as that will definitely contribute to them going of. I always wrap meat lightly in greaseproof paper and store it at the bottom of the fridge.  Just an idea. Hope you are feeling better.
