THE UNVEILING


After, many months of work the H.G. Wells statue was unveiled outside The Lightbox gallery in Woking on the 21st September to celebrate Wells' 150th Anniversary.

The Wells in Woking team at Woking Council put on a fantastic afternoon's celebration of the author, with engaging talks from Stewart Ross, Stephen Baxter and Dominic Wells. Music was provided by the exceptionally talented Shane Thomas who performed a piece composed to celebrate the Wells event.

The event gathered members of Wells' family from across the globe with 16 members attending and it was a great honour to have them present for the unveiling.

With the statue unveiled I hope all those who attended and anyone visiting in the future feel that it is a fitting tribute to the great author. I would like to extend my thanks to Woking Council, the Wells in Woking team and Riette Thomas for their continued support throughout and giving me the opportunitiy to create this monument.
