20 March 2017 – Eric Shanes

It is with great sadness that we report the death of NADFAS lecturer, Eric Shanes, after a long illness. Eric was to have given our July 2017 lecture on the Life and Works of J.M.W. Turner and he will be sorely missed. We are now seeking a replacement lecturer for the July lecture whose name we will announce in due course.

28 February 2017 – Flurry of activity

After the lull of January we have been really busy this month. More than a hundred members (a record) attended the lecture on Nickolas Pevsner and the Buildings of England at the beginning of February. It was very well presented by Susie Harries who did a great job in concentrating on buildings in Surrey.

On 10 February we held our second New Members’ Drinks Party which is a great way for new members to get to know the Committee and other new members.

Over 40 members attended the Captain Cook study day on 17 February.

40 visited the Courtauld Gallery on 24 February and a further 40 visited Westminster Abbey on 25 February for a private guided tour with singing by the Purcell Club.

We continue to offer a very full programme of events and we look forward to welcoming guests and new members to our next lecture which is on Tuesday 7 March, drinks at 7pm, one-hour lecture at 8pm. The lecture will be on Dutch and English Delft.
