    I was lucky enough to have been invited for the opening night and it is incredible. 

    Advice for anyone planning on going - make sure your phone battery or camera is fully charged!

    I went last Sunday and loved it - thoroughly recommend it. There is a show at the end too with very talented artists. Time is running out - last day 25th February. I think as the days are getting longer, it is better to go at 6pm or later. You can find a discounted tickets online if you want to save a little money.
    Here are a few of my pictures:
