Newsletter to members: November/December 2022


Dear member

Our 2022/23 season is now well under way with two outstanding lectures behind us and looking forward to our last one of the year, Guy de la Bedoyere on 14th December speaking on “Pharaohs of the Sun”.

It is heartening to see that members attending our live lectures are steadily increasing. For our November session 159 members attended session 1, 128 session 2. We also welcomed 18 visitors and two new members who joined on the day. Do continue to bring in friends and relatives as for just £6 they can also enjoy a first-class lecture on an arts topic.

It was a real pleasure for our committee to meet our newest members at our coffee morning held in the Mezzanine Bar. We do hope you will spread the word and encourage others to join our successful society.

I must apologise for the long registration queues and congestion that ensued at our last lecture. We have now addressed this issue and you will be able to register at either desk which will speed up the process of admission to screen 1. A separate desk for guest payments, payment of study days, courses etc will be available where we now have a card reader to make payments, for those of you who don’t have electronic banking. This desk will also have application forms available for membership and our forthcoming study and course days. Can I gently remind you that we don’t accept cash payments and we would rather that you didn't pay by cheque.

We have now sold out for our study day “The Royal Opera House” on Wednesday 30th November but there are still places available for the Artists Stories course on 23rd November on Eugene Delacroix.

It only remains to thank you all for supporting our lecture programme and we hope to see you on December 14th between the two lectures in the Mezzanine Bar for a pre-Xmas mince pie coffee/tea and chat (11:30 - 12:15pm).
