Further details

Clive Anderson, qualified barrister, talkshow host, presenter of Whose Line is it Anyway?, and one of the first people to perform at the Comedy Store, offers the Museum the Old Bailey, which is not that old as you may think it is and the Statue of Justice on top is not blindfolded.

Anne Dudley, composer and musician who founded the Art of Noize, creator dozens of movie scores including the Oscar winning arrangement for The Full Monty, and who was so nervous about her job she used to claim she was a VAT inspector, donates the Woolsack, which in medieval times was sat on by judges to represent its role in the economy. In 1938, the Woolsack in the House of Lords was found to contain horsehair, but its now got wool in it again.

Richard Williams, three-times Oscar winning animator, creator of the title sequences including The Return of the Pink Panther and the original Casino Royale, as well as the creator of Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, gives a Disney Desk, a desk that acts like a mini-production line which helps animators with their work.
