Hi Guys,

Apologies to those of you kept hanging on waiting lists. This proved to be more popular than expected.

I'm happy to announce the BM has generously agreed to host a second session on Friday 11th May 2018. We are now able to cater for 30 individuals on the Friday handling session. This new session will take place between 10am-12pm.

Please note - you don't need to do anything.

The first 15 to apply have already received confirmations from Peter.

If you are one of the first 15 on the waiting list, you will be receiving an email shortly from Peter confirming your space on the session.

If you are above 15 on the waiting list, don't lose hope. It's inevitable one or two drop out. As soon as Peter knows of anyone dropping out, you will be contacted and allocated a space.

Great news that another 15 people can get a chance to handle choice netsuke at the BM on 11Th May.

Bad news - I cannot make it to London before noon on the 11th May and I just missed out on being one of the fortunate 15 for the afternoon session so am on the reserve list.

Any chance that one of the first lucky 15 is prepared to take pity on me and swap an afternoon for a morning attendance instead at the BM please, please, please !!!!!
