After Christmas


A stage has been set up in the corner of the museum, and for a few days only there is a performance of 'The Night After Christmas' (27-30 Dec 1.30PM to 3:30PM and 2-5 Jan 11.00AM to 1.00PM). Its free.

Father Christmas relates his experience travelling around the world, and how different countries treat him.

The show can be seen by all those who can climb the stairs. The lift to the County Hall is still planned. If there is lottery funding available it will be a scaled down version. English Heritage would not agree to the full lift, and Private Eye didn't want it either.

(The Abingdon Herald has the full story about the museum lift compromise. I see above that Gordon Rogers, the Abingdon local reporter, is retiring. The editor writes "Gordon has been a great district reporter. He has immersed himself in the patch he covers, and our readers, are going to miss him greatly.")

You might want to take a look at this unique wheelchair lift system http://www.wheelchairaccess.co.uk The System is imbedded into a staircase turning it into a retracting set of stairs that reveal a platform lift / disabled lift for wheelchair access. These stairs can be clad in the same existing material or whatever material required, from carpet to marble. Internal/External access, perfect even for listed buildings.
