Event Programme  2023-24

This year’s programme spans some 2,000 years, from the churches of the pre-Christian, pre-Roman era through the 12th century Lewis chessmen (postponed from last year) to the work of two huge figures in contemporary art, street artist Banksy and pioneer of performance art Marina Abramovic. Along the way we’ll look at the art of the Atlantic slave trade from the perspective of Europe and the Americas and the twentieth century paintings of Edward Hopper. In February we’ll hear the extraordinary story of Lilian Baylis, founder of the English National Opera, the National Theatre and the Royal Ballet, and in March delve into the Golden Era of music in Venice. It’s a varied and at times challenging programme so hold onto your hats and enjoy the ride …
