CHRISTMAS LECTURE & PARTY | 1st DECEMBER LECTURE | 7:30pm | Jeni Fraser - Once Upon a Time…
When you think of fairy tales, you most likely remember bedtime stories heard as a child; however, Grimm's fairy tales were not intended for children, but rather, adults. The German brothers did not actually write the stories but collected them as part of a rich folkloric tradition passed down from generation to generation. Learn about some famous, and some lesser known, tales - most of which are (unexpectedly) twisted and gruesome.
Our Society brings people together through a shared curiosity for the arts. Our events provide welcoming places to hear expert lecturers share their specialist knowledge about the arts. Our members contribute to and preserve our artistic heritage through volunteering and grants. Our work creates a better, healthier and more connected society.
Every year we hold a wide ranging and fascinating programme of lectures, visits, workshops and social events. We are not a society of artists or craftspeople, but of people who share a curiosity for the arts. Our members (who do include artists and craftspeople) are interested in all art-related disciplines including painting, sculpture, music, literature, ceramics, and architecture. We try and ensure that the programme has something of interest to everyone and with such a committed and enthusiastic membership there’s always something new and exciting going on!
Live lectures take place in main theatre at the Zennor Building at Penwith College. Doors open at 6:45pm - 7:30pm talk commences. Refreshments in the Refectory.
