Chairman’s  Newsletter

A warm welcome to existing and new members for our 2019 autumn season where we offer an exciting programme of first class monthly lectures on subjects ranging from The Art of Illusion to Stained Glass in the Age of George III.

This is an exciting time as we launch our back-to-back lecture sessions. The first starts at 10.30am, second at 12.30pm but, for both, please be seated at least 10 minutes beforehand. The changes made at Broadway provide more comfortable, spacious seating, a higher quality visual experience and importantly will enable the society to remove the waiting list. We positively welcome new member applications so please tell your friends.

As well as attending our lectures we hope you will participate in our other events. The Study Day on November 25th covering The Age of Jazz has tickets available while limited spaces are left on our Six Cities and Their Artists course.

Sadly we had to cancel our planned Sheffield outing to The Cutlers Hall due to matters beyond our control.

We are pleased to announce that Broadway has agreed a 50p saving to members on “Silver Screen” films each Thursday but only if you show your current pink membership card.

We have just received good news following our 3rd year sponsored arts student at Nottingham Trent University. Lucy Bentley, who is researching and producing wallpaper designs based on William Morris, has been selected to exhibit at the New Talent area of the Surface Design show in London in February. We wish her good luck in her career. We plan to continue sponsorship of the Young Arts in Nottingham in the coming year.

Finally I very much look forward to meeting you all over the next few weeks in what promises to be an exciting time for our society. With the excellent support of all the committee we are hoping to build on our success with the new changes. As ever, if you would like to be part of the organising team for any aspects of the Society we welcome that.
