Setting up the MoR headquarters

February 21st, 2011

We can’t be expected to do some awesome investigations without an awesome headquarters, so we spent Monday morning getting our space set up the way we wanted it.

Our first Inspector decided we needed a proper place to put photos of all the MoR staff, so he kindly set about making a sign for an Inspectors’ Gallery. This got filled up through the day as more and more people decided they had what it takes to work for the MoR.

By lunchtime we had also acquired a variety of signs, instructions, a clock, an investigations van, a secret code and much more…

Inspector-generated stuff!

By the end of the two sessions we’d pretty much filled all the wall space… Someone described the HQ as feeling like a laboratory – as good a description as any!

Yesterday the MoR went to New Walk Museum and Art Gallery to do a quick reccy on the Play Ground Exhibition.

Over half term this area will be transformed into the Ministry of Rules HQ.

We’ve got a large space at the end of the gallery that we can take over and use as our headquarters. Those trestle tables and the exhibits will be relocated and that massive wall along the back will soon get covered with the hugemongous mind map!

Staff at the Ministry of Rules are nothing if we’re not thorough, so we also tested Mungo Thomson’s Skyspace Bouncehouse for you and we can confirm it’s *ahem* adequately bouncy.

We start our investigations on Monday the 21st – see you in just over a week’s time!
