Special Interest Day

Held in the Spring and Autumn, these Special Interest Days are a popular component of the programme.

We invite an expert to spend a day with a small group to examine a particular topic - past subjects have included exploring Shakespeare as seen through the artists eye, a practical session on restoring a piece of old furniture, days devoted to Picasso, Silver, Winchester, Samplers, English Cathedrals and most recently, Jewellery.

They are sometimes linked to a future visit and are held in a variety of venues and include lunch.
