We make a selection of ten different subjects each season covering a wide spectrum of interest in the arts fields with a question and answer session with the speaker at the end of the hour's talk.
Our new season will begin on Wednesday 12th September with Barbara Askew talking about Victoria and Albert. They were born just three months apart in 1819 and the way they met and married is famiiar to us all. Perhaps we know less about their interest in the arts and the extent to which they influenced the buildings they inhabited. Not only was Osborne House on the Isle of Wight Albert's own 'baby', but Balmoral, Sandringham, Windsor Castle and even Buckinham Palace were all subject to the redesigning influences of Albert and Victoria.
All our speakers are well qualified and good at delivering interesting and stimulating talks to their audiences. The topics from which we choose our lectures cover all the arts, from Old Masters to modern jewellery, beautiful old buildings to modern sculpture.
The Arts Society
For years we were called The Lymington Decorative and Fine Arts Society, and we were members of The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies - NADFAS.
NADFAS has changed its name to The Arts Society. We have changed our name as well, in order to continue using the national body's help and information. This means that we are able to request expert experienced lecturers to visit us and talk about their particular specialities accompanying their talks with splendid illustrative presentations.
