Special Interest Days 2013

These days are held in Borwick and Priest Hutton Memorial Hall and are led by experts in their fields.  Subjects recently studied include: The Grand Tour, Be Your Own Art Detective; A Passion for Tea; Byzantine Mosaics. These events have proved to be both popular and informative.

Tea, coffee and a full lunch are provided as part of the days.Places for these events are usually limited, and therefore early booking is advised.

In 2013 we have two special interest days.
