On Friday March 3rd we shall have a trip to Great Bardfield where Eric Ravilious and Tirzah Garwood lived. We shall meet at 1 for lunch at The Vine, then walk round Great Bardfield and then re-assemble for a cup of tea at the excellent local bookshop Between the Lines which stocks Persephone books. The best way to get to Great Bardfield is by train to Braintree and then there is a bus which takes half an hour or we shall organise a taxi. (We have chosen a Friday because some of you might want to stay at the very nice Bucks House.) Nb. in early June we shall have a Persephone visit to the Towner in Eastbourne and in September a visit to the Fry Gallery in Saffron Walden. THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT
On Friday April 28th at 6pm Rugby School is hosting a street party as part of its 450th anniversary events celebrating the bequest of Lawrence Sheriff (1510–67), ‘purveyor of spices to Queen Elizabeth 1st’ who owned extensive property in Bloomsbury and made provision in his will for the income from Lambs Conduit to endow Rugby School.
All the events, apart from those that are free and the Book Group which costs £10, are £25: please ring the office to book.
A reminder: the Persephone Book Group is on the first Wednesday of the month at 6.30. Madeira and bread and cheese are served. On March 1st Nicola Beauman will lead a discussion about Every Eye by Isobel Englisht. On Wednesday 5th April Maud Goodhart will lead a discussion of They Knew Mr Knight.
