Lord St John of Fawsley, through the auspices of his charity, the Royal Fine Art Commission Education Trust, continues to make an award for the building of the year. He has been leading his 'look-and-lunch' judges, accompanied by a bacon-roll film team from Sky Television, around shortlisted projects, including the Royal Opera House. Imagine his surprise on finding his old rfac Secretary, Francis Golding, standing in a ticket queue as the judges conduct interviews with 'ordinary people'. Golding tells me that you can get £150 tickets for £15 these days, if you can be bothered to queue. He told his old boss that he hoped the queue 'will not encourage buskers'.
