Dear Mr Arader
I wanted to let you know some excellent news - Sir David Attenborough has just confirmed that he will be able to attend the press view of Happy Birthday Edward Lear: 200 Years of Nature & Nonsense on Wednesday 19 September. Sir David, who is a huge fan of Lear, will officially open the exhibition to the press at about 11am. This will be followed by an informal lunch with him, curators and lenders to the exhibition. We hope very much that you will be able to join us too on that morning. We will send you a more formal invitation nearer the time but I wanted to alert you to the date now.
We are delighted that Arader Galleries are sponsoring the Lear exhibition & look forward to working with you. Our designers will be working on materials for the exhibition in the next two to three weeks and we will send over proofs to you as soon as we have them.
Very best wishes
PS I will be away from the office from today until Tuesday 31 July – if you or your colleagues have any queries in my absence, please do not hesitate to contact my colleague, Sarah Casey, in the first instance.Theresa Nicolson
