Officially over...

I hope you haven't got many of these tucked away, or at least not suitcases full: as of tomorrow the £20 'Elgar' note will no longer be legal tender, "The removal of Elgar from the £20 note brings to an end the representation of the arts on any English banknote, and has been greeted with dismay by some in the arts world" [Link]. Don't panic just yet: Andrew Bailey of the Bank of England says:
"For several months from the end of June most banks, building societies and Post Offices should accept Elgar £20 notes for deposit to customer accounts and for other customer transactions, although the choice to exchange the notes rests with each institution."

I have to be honest and say I haven't got a clue whose on our notes these days. Shame on me.
