Happy New Year to all our members!

Today we enjoyed a brilliant lecture when Gavin Plumley talked about Mahler and Klimt the “Two Gustavs” and what links and divides them. Gavin Plumley is ‘leading cultural historian’ and well known for his work on Central European music and culture during the 19th and 20th centuries. A fascinating hour which included musical interludes.

In February Anne Sebba will tell us the story of women’s lives during the Nazi occupation; the lecture includes British and American women caught in Paris during the World War II. In February we will also be selling tickets for our Special Interest Event on 16 April “The Brilliance of British Architecture and Design” (Ian Swankie).

We are looking forward to our Visit to London on 26 February “Tutankhamun and the Roaring Twenties” and have been most successful in selling tickets for this event. (Val Woolford 01932 252007).

We hope you have received your 2020 Programme card and sticky labels and that you will enjoy our lectures for the year ahead.
