The Celebrations Continue...

The Johnson tercentenary celebrations are still in full swing here in Lichfield. Below are a couple of pictures I took yesterday: the first is Johnson's bust in the Birthplace Museum, decked with flowers, and the second is Johnson's statue in the Market Square which has a wreath placed on it each year to mark the birthday.

The Johnson Society's annual supper in Lichfield's Guildhall was a complete success last night, with the Bishop of Lichfield, the Rt Reverend Jonathan Gledhill, taking up the post of President. If you're interested I've written a blow-by-blow account of the evening for The Lichfield Blog, but there are some photographs of the event below. We all received a commemorative Johnson clay pipe (bottom) made especially for the occasion.
