Crowded house

The National Gallery in London has announced that to “combat gallery rage” they will reduce numbers allowed into their forthcoming Leonardo da Vinci exhibition from 230 to 180 per half hour. They have also told prospective visitors they need to swot up on da Vinci before they turn up so they don’t slow things down reading the labels. Critics are marking this as the end of the Blockbuster exhibition and the beginning of a new Ballbuster phase.
