talk by Tudor Allen


James has been a dedicated painter for many years
He opted to share three paintings he did at the beginning of lockdown and the last one was done prior to the lockdown. Here’s what he had to say about them:

I’m doing well but I have been very lazy on the painting front. Did three painting early on with some of the Open Age art groups in the local parks. Would describe them as poor to average but happy to share them with you.


From Chris:

David Copperfield show

Michael and I will be going to Copperfield!
If any of our members live near Lauderdale House, a much loved arts and music venue in Highgate and on our list to visit as part of my Walk & Talk programme once the whole house is open. SD compliant is certainly better than either virtual or nothing at all.

Here are the details for the show.

Copperfield! adapted by Harry Meacher, based on the Novel by Charles Dickens

When: Sunday 20 September | Doors open 7pm | Show starts 7.30pm | £10

You are cordially invited to join the company for a candlelit and costumed rehearsed socially distanced reading of this new show presented by local established actors, Harry Meacher, Verity Sanstall, Judi Bowker, Kathryn Worth, Bryan Hands, Joan Walker, John Hasler, Rachael Miller, Andrew McRobb, Dudley Rogers and Nigel Pilkington. Presented by Handplay Productions and Peter Walton, in association with Lauderdale House
