We went to visit Sir Peter and Chrissy Blake. We’d been emailing the wrong address for months, so by the time we finally made contact we had already filled many of our image requirements for the mural. Apologetically we asked whether there was already an existing image of Chiswick available, or what Sir Peter would like to do… “Please,” he said, “ Can I do the Empire Theatre – it’s the main reason I came to live in Chiswick.”
We almost fell off our chairs in pleasure. A brand new, original, specially-made collage in his classic style of the great music hall theatre on our High Road. Our cup ran over.
And then he offered to create a limited edition print run to help our fundraising!
A highlight day for us.
