March update

Our next live lecture is on 10 March when Alexandra Epps will talk to us about “Peggy Guggenheim”, the poor little rich girl who changed the face of 20th century art. Marguerite "Peggy" Guggenheim was an American art collector, bohemian and socialite. Born to the wealthy New York City Guggenheim family, she was the daughter of Benjamin Guggenheim, who went down with the Titanic in 1912, and the niece of Solomon R. Guggenheim who established the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation.

Following the success of last month’s lecture we hope to welcome more members to All Saints Church Hall. Seats will be well-spaced for social distancing and masks available if required!

On 21 April (registration from 10am – start 10.30) we have our first Special Interest Event for almost two years at Riverhouse Barn. David Rosier, who spent 25 years working in Asia, will give two lectures entitled “Chinese Formal and Informal Court Costume (1644-1911). “A journey through and beyond the Imperial Wardrobe”. We will have a coffee break between the first and second lecture. Tickets will be available from 10 March (price £28) on sale at the lecture or from Alison Lornie (01932 252007). We hope to see you there.
