Forthcoming visits

2 March 2018 – Drawn in Colour: Degas from the Burrell at the National Gallery

Louise has booked us a self guided tour. We will meet in the main entrance hall of the National Gallery (approached up the wide external staircase from Trafalgar Square) at 10.30 am, and go down to the exhibition together. There is a café adjacent to the exhibition where we can gather after an hour or so to discuss it and, doubtless, other matters. This is a free exhibition.

13 April 2018 – Gursky at the Hayward Gallery

9 February 2018 – Rhythm and Reaction: The Age of Jazz in Britain, at Two Temple Place
