Two Interesting Opportunities offered by The Arts Society, Windsor (Evening)

The first of these is a Special Interest day about Lutyens and Jekyll and their influence on 20th Century British Gardens, to be held on Thursday 22 February, all day, in Windsor. The lecturer is James Bolton, a well-known independent landscape consultant and author specialising in historic gardens and architecture.

Added Value for members of The Arts Society in the Chiltern Hills Area

After the summer break, the prospect of enjoying a new programme of lectures over the winter months is always satisfying for members of The Arts Society. Did you know that in addition to your own Society activities there are also other opportunities for you to enjoy a lecture experience or a Special Interest Day, hosted by another Society in our Area.  Often these opportunities come up at fairly short notice, because obviously members of the Society organising the event get preference. There are a number of opportunities currently available.
