An exhibition of antiquities, documents, artworks and musical instruments presented by Richard Watkins.

Since time immemorial, musicians, artists, their instruments, and their Muses have interacted as creative partners. Whether being deified, lauded, or even sometimes cursed, they have evolved with us through history, transcending darker ages to renaissances and better times. From the humble busker or troubadour to the Gods and Goddesses of the guitar, the guitar, and its ancestors in their myriad of forms, have been the paramount medium for the language and song of the Muse in art and performance. This exhibition draws from antiquities, documents, artworks, and musical instruments from prehistory to the present day in its collection of Holy Grail Guitars.
