    Chip Taylor and John Platania

    Creating distinctive music that is also enduring and influential has been Chip Taylor’s métier over the course of what is closing in on five decades as “one of America’s finest songwriters as well as a masterful singer and performer,” says Rolling Stone. His two best-known songs are only some of the many pop, rock, country and R&B chart hits he wrote in the 1960s (Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield and Frank Sinatra all recorded his songs).  Taylor was then one of the pioneers of the pivotal country-rock movement as a recording artist in the 1970s.   His 1973 album, Last Chance, remains a beloved cult classic.  But after refusing to play by the Nashville establishment rules, Taylor gave up music for full-time professional gambling in 1980.

    Talk on how to steal a million, famous art thefts

    Drinks from 7pm, one-hour lecture at 8pm. £5 payable on the door. No ticket needed.

    Description 

    We have all heard about audacious art heists that are more like blockbuster movies than run-of-the-mill burglaries. In this lecture, we are going to look at famous art thefts, discuss what motivates art thieves as well as examine what aspects the thefts have in common. We will also look at where the burglars made mistakes, which enabled investigators to swoop in and recover stolen masterpieces. In many cases, the police sting operations were just as daring as the thefts.

    Speaker's Profile
    Our speaker, Shauna Isaac, has been active in World War II art restitution for several years and has worked with families and government organisations to recover Nazi looted art. She set up the Central Registry on Looted Cultural Property and served as a member of the Working Group for the Holocaust Era Assets Conference in Prague. Shauna studied at the Courtauld Institute of Art in the UK and Smith College in the USA. She is a regular lecturer at the Sotheby’s Institute of Art. Her publications include articles for The Art Newspaper, The Times Literary Supplement and Art Quarterly. She is a contributor to the book Insiders/Outsiders: Refuges from Nazi Europe and their contribution to British Visual Culture.

    The Private Life of Elizabeth I

    Tracy Borman, the renowned historian and author – frequently appearing on television and radio - is Chief Executive of the Heritage Education Trust and joint Chief Curator for the Historic Royal Palaces.

    This talk will explore the private life, loves and secrets of Elizabeth I.

    The iconic Virgin Queen led a very different life to that which most of her subjects witnessed.  It was vital to show no vulnerability to the outside world - any sign of frailty, illness or the natural process of ageing had to be disguised by a mask of invincibility.

    Tracy Borman sets Elizabeth’s life in context by exploring the evolution of private life during the Tudor period.  Drawing upon her expertise working in the heritage sector, she will consider how the architecture of the Tudor palaces reinforced the privacy and mystique of this royal dynasty.  She will examine the nature and role of the Privy Chamber which had to be adapted for a female sovereign, the legacy of Elizabeth’s private life and its dramatic contrast with that of her successor.

    Tickets will be available on the night. Members £8 and non-members £12
