Welcome to our Winter programme which includes a specially interesting talk from two of our Committee members, David Austin and Tim Mars. Our Christmas visit includes two houses, one, Pitzhanger Manor, a highly praised restoration and the other, Sir John Soane Museum, home to the critically acclaimed Hogarth exhibition.

Following feedback from our members we are experimenting with holding meetings on a Saturday afternoon, so members no longer have to turn out on dark, cold nights. Please let us know what you think even if you can’t come to the talk.

We look forward to seeing you on November 30th when you will be able to enjoy tea or coffee and cake after the talk.
