2021 Art Lectures

We have had five successful art lectures so far this year ranging from Rafael and Vermeer to Grayson Perry, with some 140 Members watching! A great success for which we must thank Sue Jell!

The art lectures have now reached their summer break but the next one for your diary is on 21st September – John Piper and Graham Sutherland by Val Woodgate – when we plan to be back in the Clubhouse!
