Each month we have an illustrated lecture on an arts topic. In the recent past the topics have ranged from painting and ceramics to architecture and garden design – whatever takes our interest. We visit historic houses, gardens, art galleries and museums and hold study days when we want to look at something in more depth. We go on at least one cultural tour a year. Our goal is simple: to explore a wide range of subjects and enjoy ourselves in the process!

We welcome guests; see the Join Us section for details.

Sacred Art of Burma @ St Peter's Hall | Limpsfield | England | United Kingdom

The temples, iconography, sculptures, textiles, dance performances, literature, landscapes and people of Burma are infused with the spirit of Buddhism. This gentle philosophy, preaching peace and serenity, has inspired some of the greatest art and architecture in the world, nowhere more so than in Burma, now known as Myanmar.

This lecture shows the artistic glories of temples throughout the country, their spires, statues, carvings, murals and rituals. It illustrates the religious symbolism of exquisite textiles and compelling dance ceremonies.

Denise Heywood is an author, lecturer, photographer and journalist. She worked in Cambodia as a journalist for three years and has also lived in France and America. She writes for many art, literary and travel publications, leads art tours to Southeast Asia and France and lectures on cruise ships sailing throughout Asia.

Her latest book is Cambodian Dance Celebration of the Gods, with a foreword by Princess Buppha Devi, daughter of King Sihanouk.
