Sarah Douglas – Misty Moon Gallery Lewisham, London 25th January 2014

On Saturday 25th January 2014 The Misty Moon Gallery (just behind the Ladywell Tavern) Played host to an evening with Sarah Douglas followed by a viewing of the awesome Richard Donner Cut of Superman II. A cosy place filled to maximum capacity of about 20 very lucky people who got to enjoy the company of the Amazing Sarah Douglas. She was an absolute delight! Upon entering the gallery she immediately wanted to introduce herself to everyone and find out their names and where they came from, with a packet of Crisps in One hand and a glass of wine in the other she apologised for having missed her evening meal and that the crisps would suffice. Note personal note on Autograph liking the T-Shirt.
