October 21st saw the exact 200 year anniversary of the inaugural meeting of the committee that founded the Royal Manchester Eye Hospital. The day was marked by a celebratory open day at the hospital. I started the day being interviewed on BBC Radio Manchester about the celebrations, Look200 and the part that I would be playing in Manchester Science Festival Week. You can hear the interview here. Later in the day I joined the celebrations at the hospital and was able to thank a few of the wonderfully supportive staff by creating some portrait sketches for them.
