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.
