This lecture traces merrymaking, excess, banqueting, dances and music in a feast of colour. Optional Christmas lunch for members only.

From Greek mosaics in the second century, through weddings in the Bible, Renaissance allegories of refinement and excess, 16th century peasant parties, 18th century courting rituals to the celebratory styles of 20th century painters, the depiction of parties has always been popular in the history of Western Art. The lecture traces merrymaking, excess, banqueting, dances and music in a feast of colour.

N.B. Coffee from 11:00. The lecture begins at 11:30 with Christmas lunch at 13:00 for members only. Tickets will be available from the October meeting from Mrs Freda Markham. Please inform Freda if you are attending the lecture only.
