‘The English Parish Church: A Social and Architectural History’

Lecturer: Andrew Davies

We are fortunate indeed to have so many parish churches (c.17,000), all different and each with its own unique story to tell. We will explore their development both inside and out, glorying in our wool churches, commanding towers and spires and regional diversity.  Churchyards, stained glass. Doom paintings, errant clergymen all feature in this fully illustrated talk.

‘Masterpieces of Tate Britain’

Lecturer: Val Woodgate

Home of the National Collection of British art,Tate Britain displays a magnificent collection of six centuries of art produced in Britain and is the world centre for the study and enjoyment of British art and culture. The gallery contains major works by artists such as Hogarth, Gainsborough, Stubbs, Constable, Turner, the Pre-Raphaelites, Hockney and Bacon. This study day will examine highlights of the collection housed at Tate Britain presenting, in effect, a history of British art from the Tudors to the present day.
