Basingstoke Arts Society

Are you wondering how to fill your day during the restrictions of another lockdown? Why not join one of our Zoom lectures. We are the Basingstoke branch of The Arts Society and we have moved our programme of monthly lectures on to Zoom during lockdown. We enjoy stimulating talks from Arts Society registered lecturers on a wide range of topics. We are inviting anyone who is interested to join us at these lectures which are live on Wednesdays at 10.45 am. Lectures last for one hour and there is an opportunity to put questions to the lecturer at the end. At Christmas we watched video clips from a Royal Ballet production of The Nutcracker whilst a member of their orchestra treated us to a unique glimpse of how things worked backstage. On February 17th we will be learning about Fakes and Forgeries: The Art of Deception from a former specialist police detective. Or if you prefer to learn about a topic in more detail we have a Study Day on February 24th from Peter Medhurst entitled Paintings inspired by Music and Music inspired by Painting who will discuss and analyse a range of magnificent paintings as well as giving us a live recital. Lectures cost £5 and Study Days cost £15 for non-members.
