An Update on what the Publicity and Programme Group have been doing
Dear All – Unusual times
All Arts Society activities have been suspended on both a National and local level and there is much uncertainty about when or how normal service will resume. Rest assured your committee at the Arts Society Teme Valley is still working behind the scenes preparing a programme for the next year in the certain hope we can all meet again sometime before the end of 2020. We have already booked lectures by: Sandy Burnett on Beethoven at 250; Christopher de Hamel on Duc de Berry; Anne Anderson on How we got to IKEA and Bertie Pearce on Wonder Workers and the Art of Illusion. We will be booking further lecturers shortly.
Many of the committee have been following with interest the exciting opportunities provided by the Arts Society website. If you haven’t logged onto this please do - https://theartssociety.org/ and connected.theartssociety.org where there is an excellent series of short lectures which so far have included Jacqueline Cockburn on Las Meninas and Sarah Dunant on Venice, Dressed and Undressed. Future lectures include:
Mark Hill: 5 May
Nicola Moorby: 19 May
Marc Allum: 2 June
Rebecca Hossack: 16 June
Sandy Burnett: 30 June
We have also been enjoying the BBC series on Museums in quarantine.

In addition you can sign up to the Arts Society Newsletter. We hope you find all this useful and helps pass this interminable hiatus in our lives. If you have heard of or found other interesting offerings please let us know by email or by sending the information to our website manager Geoff Neden (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will post it for you. Stay well, stay in touch with the Arts and let us celebrate a new year of our Arts Society soon.
