Review 2020/21 Season
Our penultimate talk of the season was A Brief Story of Wine, plus an additional talk on English towns in the 18th century
A Brief Story of Wine plus English Towns in the 18th century
Cleopatra, the Most Womanly of Women and the Most Queenly of Queens
Silk Road and the Sea
February’s lecture given by Anne Haworth on the Silk Road and the Sea, was most interesting and informative, Anne managed to take us on a 4,000 mile journey in 70 minutes, quite phenomenal and beautifully illustrated.Your committee voted it exceptional.
Our thanks to the Seruya family for their generous sponsorship.

The Material Culture of Al Andalus
A very big thank you to Ian Cockburn on giving us such an interesting and comprehensive talk on the history of Al Andalus , his art work of that period made it all the more fascinating.
It gives us inspiration to visit or revisit all these historical buildings on our doorstep once we can travel again.
Grateful thanks to our sponsors Church & Co , who give tremendous support to our society.
