Appreciation of the Arts
Where:- Various Venues
When:- Trip Specific
Co-ordinator:- Hilary Dewhurst
The aim of our group is to experience as many diverse forms of art as we can - no prior knowledge is necessary. We are a friendly group with a varied programme. Our previous visits have included art galleries, museums, churches and cathedrals in Manchester, Liverpool, Salford, Sheffield, Hull and various other towns and cities.
We have taken a backstage tour of the Royal Exchange, visited Yorkshire Sculpture Park and looked at ecclesiastical embroidery and medieval and modern stained glass.
Our programme for the year 2019/20 is yet to be finalised but we are hoping to visit:-
Hepworth Art Gallery
Chethams School of Music
Chethams Library Tour
The Piece Hall, Halifax
The Royal Armouries in Sheffield
Rochdale -to visit the Town Hall Pioneers Museum and Touchstones Art Gallery.
All are welcome to join us. Dates and times may vary according to the venue to be visited but we are hoping to meet once a month usually on the first Tuesday.
