Local artist, Ted Coney will be working in a pop-up studio in the main courtroom on his latest painting ‘Who Stole The Toothpaste?’
Visitors will also be able to see sketches made in the courtroom and cells over the last year.
Ted’s painting shows how his family lost a fortune over a hundred years ago. He has used the image of Mr Toad to show how greed and pomposity can lead to ruin.
It is reputed that E.H. Shepard, (the illustrator of ‘Wind in the Willows’), used Ely’s courtroom as the inspiration for Toad’s downfall.
