Design Museum -Sept 25, 2011 - Anglepoise Lamp give away

Found out that the first 50 people to buy a ticket to the Design Museum on Sunday 25 September would get a a FREE Anglepoise lamp Type 1228 special edition!
The Design Museum to celebrate the 2011 London Design Festival was giving away 50 Anglepoise lamps on Sunday 25th, 2011.
Lovely sunny Sunday morning as shown below I head over to the Design Museum at what I thought was early enough 

The Anglepoises formed a display in the Design Museum Tank to celebrate the museum's Kenneth Grange exhibition and today 50 Anglepoises were given away as ex-display. 

Launched in 2004 the Anglepoise Type 1228 designed by Kenneth Grange is now available with a Daffodil Yellow lampshade which is exclusive to the Design Museum Shop for the duration of the exhibition Kenneth Grange: Making Britain Modern.

People that were lucky enough to be the first ones at the Museum entrance
well, they were there since 5:45 am

As for me, I was almost the last one in the queue...

still decided to enjoy the sunny morning and take pictures to share with you all

see Tower Bridge and the queue

I was the last one at 8:45 am

Josephine, lovely lady came outside and started giving out  envelopes to the lucky winners

inside the envelope...

This letter saying...
the Anglepoise Lamp you have received is an ex-display. This means that it cannot be returned or exchanged by either the Design Museum or Anglepoise.

As a compensation, she offered them free tickets for the Design Museum :)
