The Seven Dials Exhibition covers history, architecture and horology. The first version was made and sponsored by the Royal Opera House Covent Garden. It was displayed so many times that it wore out. A second version was then prepared by Peter Heath, design director of W.S. Atkins. Comprising 36 large laminated boards it has proved more durable. Though many of the boards — those dealing with the making of the Sundial Pillar, the history of the area and horology — are permanent, the boards dealing with the public realm are in need of updating. Feedback from the venues where the exhibition has been displayed demonstrates a fascination with the area's past and more historical images have become available since the original research was undertaken.
