Event Description

Finally as promised we can bring you 'The Eduardo Munez Letter Opening Ceremony'!

Eduardo Munez is a short film about a LOT of letters and we ran a mail art project that many of you took part in to collect letters to use in our film as props. We eventually received 489 from 35 countries. All were used in the film - but none have been opened until now!

That's why we are holding an Opening Ceremony - to see what's inside Eduardo's beautiful envelopes!

The event will will take place on the 17th of November at Stanley Gibbons, 399, The Strand, London from 18:00 - 20:00.

All 489 letters sent to Eduardo will be there ready for us to open. We can't wait to see what's inside each beautiful envelope.

We would like to invite you all to the event event on the 17th. We will also be reserving a table in a nearby pub should you wish to join us for a drink after the Opening finishes in Stanley Gibbons at 20:00.

Stanley Gibbons is also known as the 'home of stamp collecting' and is located on the Strand just a minutes walk from Charing Cross station.

If you'd like to join us, please RSVP so we can make sure their is enough wine and nibbles for you all!

We will also also be drawing the winners of our prize raffle at the end of the event and we will announce the winners on social media.

We hope to see some of you there!!!
