Virtual Tour for charity

Hills Road's former Head of Art, Ted Coney and his Morris Minor ride again for NHS Charities Together appeal!

Although my pop-up gallery in Ely is closed due to the pandemic I decided to offer my Virtual Tour instead as my contribution to the NHS Charities Together appeal.

The tour looks at four of my family paintings and in one of them 'Dear Reginald Owen' I fly back in time to 1930s Hollywood in my 90 year old Morris Minor (do you remember it?) to research one of my ancestors who lived and work as an actor there. You can start the tour from my website and all the proceeds will go to the charity at the end of March.

The photograph shows a recent trip inside Ely Cathedral - so the car does seem to get in everywhere!
