Awkward Reverence: Exploring the Poetry of Philip Larkin

Sat 16 February 2019, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Philip Larkin became one of Britain’s most popular post-War poets on the strength of just over 100 pages of poetry. His reputation as a grumpy, right-wing curmudgeon has sometimes distracted people from a more careful reading of the poems.

Art Exhibition: Experiencing Landscape

Fri 20 September 2019, 9:00 am to Sun 3 November 2019, 4:00 pm
Joy Hillyer’s paintings aim to convey a sense of place, of placement and exploration within the landscape. She is concerned with the ambiguity of the liminal: the juxtaposition of the real and the imagined; the interplay between essence and symbol, between light and darkness; the ephemeral and the enduring. Her work often uses her photographs as a starting point or as the ‘outer shell’ for her painting. These may be of the natural world or the built landscape, or the… Read more
