Lively, unmissable monthly lectures by internationally recognised experts.
Be transported away from the chaos of everyday life – to the beauty of fine paintings; the glory of architecture; the unique engineering and craftsmanship of motor cars or the genius of composers.
Our 40 minute lectures, given by world class professionals, embrace every Art Form and the life stories behind the most gifted men and women who inspired them.
Your first visit to one of our very special Lectures is FREE and thereafter £6. We’re sure that you will then want to join this group of lovely like-minded people for only £46 a year.
