Phew what an amazing few days!
After dashing about on Thursday morning making final tweaks to the displays, printing out captions and polishing all the glass cabinets suddenly guests were beginning to arrive for the grand opening of the Heritage Centre! The event was well attended with local media filming and recording interviews.
After speeches by the VC Dominic Shellard and the President of the Royal Historical Society, Peter Mandler, the curtain was officially drawn back by the Interior Design students who were responsible for the initial design of the Centre.
Thanks to a flurry of tweets and publicity the Centre had a steady stream of visitors all day!
An article on the BBC News website celebrated the opening: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-31836393. We were also featured on BBC Leicester radio, ITV Central news and BBC East Midlands news.
