Fantastic reviews for our Stand Tall Exhibition at St Albans Cathedral

Hi All

We have had some great reviews for the exhibition of the Stand Tall Get Snapped Exhibition at St Albans Cathedral which has been running throughout National HIV Testing week and World Aids Day week, closing today at 15.45hrs.

We will share some of the visitors comments with you shortly as they are recorded in a visitors book, the Cathedral have commented that it is the best exhibition that they have seen in many years! It has been so thrilling to be able to exhibit the project in such an atmospheric place , and under the rose window unveiled by Diana, Princess of Wales in 1989, another great champion of people living with HIV

A link to the Herts Advertiser article is below http://www.hertsad.co.uk/news/living_with_hiv_a_photographer_s_view_on_display_at_st_albans_cathedral_1_3864608

Huge thanks to all at St Albans Cathedral especially Richard Watson, to Edo Zollo the talented photographer, to all who participated in the project especially the Crescent members Chris and Rachel.

More news follows shortly, we finish our World Aids Day events with a busking day tomorrow at the Clock Tower in St Albans along with a stall in the main street market and collections throughout the city.

We hope you will come along to join us, as well as great music there is also a raffle for a huge range of prizes including a 40″ Toshiba LED TV…
