Next Lecture Wednesday 5 July

‘Masquerades, Music Lessons and Monkeys’

Jane Gardiner brings her delightful lecture to life on eighteenth century porcelain figures. Originally a form of table decoration, moving onto the mantelshelf and then into the china cabinet, we will meet characters from the Commedia del’Arte and the English stage, beggars and pedlars, lovers and musicians, shepherds and shepherdesses, and even the odd monkey!
