  • 18th Century Georgian Furniture

    Drinks from 7pm. AGM at 7.30pm. One-hour lecture at 8pm.

    Following the July lecture, the committee invites you to stay for drinks and nibbles.

    An alternative title for this lecture could be ‘Furniture of the Age of Elegance’ because the term Georgian immediately conjures up images of elegant English Furniture. This lecture traces the development of elegance through style in relation to the design and construction of furniture during the 18th century. It commences with an appraisal of early 18th century walnut furniture and progresses through the Mahogany Rococo style of the 1740s to 1760s to the fancy-wood neo-classical styles of the last quarter of the century.

    Lectuer's Profile
    Janusz Karczewski-Slowikowski is a freelance lecturer and researcher in English furniture history and also antique dealer.

    A Midsummer Night's Dream

    Shakespeare’s most popular and delightful comedy – set largely in a wood outside Athens and culminating in a massed wedding – is the perfect entertainment for our annual summer show.

    The play brings together the formality of the military court, the boisterous enthusiasm of the “Rude Mechanicals” and the mysterious charged night-world of the Faerie.  Our production will be inspired by the 1940’s and steampunk.
