I haven’t decided yet what to do on 1st May: wearing red and marching on the street, or wearing white and dancing around the May Pole (knowing myself, I’ll probably end up sitting under a tree, reading a book). But there’s a third option this year:

THE LIFE AND TIMES OF ADMIRAL COLLINGWOOD
(Please scroll down the page for schedule and more information)

Saturday, 1st May, and Sunday, 2nd May, 2010, at the Newcastle Arts Centre and the Newcastle upon Tyne Trinity House.

A two-day workshop at the North-East Centre for Lifelong Learning, tutored by acknowledged experts Max Adams, Tony Barrow and John Sadler, celebrating the bicentenary of Collingwood’s death on March 7th 1810

The workshop costs £ 55.00 (£ 35.00 if you’re a NECLL member), which includes lunch and refreshments. I dare say this will be money well spent; several interesting talks, a look at Admiral Collingwood’s letters, muster books and a rare look around Trinity House. Plus “re-enactments of actions” (tempting as it may be: please stay away from the cannons and don’t blow anything up!)

This exciting event is brought to you by the Collingwood 2010 Festival.

Or washing your face in the dew on Arthur’s Seat. It’s supposed to make you beautiful – I’ve never managed it, which may be why I’m not :)

More stray sightings :)

Apparently Lord Collingwood has been helping to encourage people to give money to the Morpeth Gathering:

and the floral display at the Morpeth clocktower will have a Collingwood theme:

Cancelled due to low numbers?
He don’t get no respect.
