15th August, 2022       ‘Behind the Screens’ – Steven B. Bruce, Auctioneer

In his talk, ‘Behind the Screens’, Steven Bruce, a fine art auctioneer and valuations expert, explains the reality behind the many TV programs that feature buying and selling antiques and collectibles at auction.  As an extra, Steven is willing to provide valuations on your antiques and collectibles, should you wish to bring them along.

 19th September, 2022 ‘Stories of our British Mammals’ – Nick Martin

Nick Martin was one of our speakers in 2019 when he told us about the development of the RSPB’s Middleton Lakes nature reserve.  His second talk looks at our native mammals and is sure to be enhanced by Nick’s own personal involvement as a naturalist and by his superb skill as a nature photographer.

17th October, 2022                 ‘The Harvesters’

This is our second visit from the Harvesters Trio, who perform music, songs, and dances based on their research into the traditional tunes and entertainment developed by settlers in the Appalachian Mountains of the USA.  This time they will be showing us how gospel and faith music evolved from Appalachian musical roots.  Bring along your clapping handstand stomping feet – you’ll be needing them!

21st November, 2022             Alan Cutler – ‘Judge, Jury, Judgement – Justice?’

Way back in 2017 Alan Carter presented us with an Edwardian murder trial, and asked us to pose as the jury of the day to decide whether the guilt of the defendant had, in fact, been proved beyond doubt.  This time he will be presenting “The Immortal Case”, another fascinating tale from the annals of crime, and asking for our verdict when we’ve heard what’s known and what’s not!
