A large group of young adults who were perhaps best described as delinquents (we weren't privy to if they were criminal or otherwise, but it was some manner of scheme that they HAD to attend) came to spend the day looking into the art collection, as part of a service run by the education team .
The results were exciting to say the least, as although some displayed interest in the works, and engaged as best they could, most were blatantly disinterested and some were very disruptive in a 'war of attrition' manner. Nothing serious enough to get thrown out, but a continual barrage of noise, rudeness and disregard for others.
This was an argument between the two external group leaders, one of whom had reached the stage where she wanted to read the riot act to the disruptive element. It is a hard line to tread, and one I'm glad I didn't have to make the call on. It was funny to see that the more 'fluffy' woman was the one who most frequently yelled across the room.
