10th April 2017
2.45p.m. Martin Dove, “Commemorative UK 50p coins: the art in your pocket.
There are over 50 different 50p coins in circulation ranging from Battle of Hastings to Battle of Britain, and from Roger Bannister to Peter Rabbit! These miniature works of art are in our purses and pockets, and most of us aren’t even aware of the craftsmanship that has gone into the design and implementation of these tiny masterpieces. Martin’s presentation will take you through the history of the 50p from 1969 to the present day.
Admission: £3 for members, £4 for non-members. As there is limited seating in the
Art Gallery, non-members must book a seat by phoning the Gallery, 01723 374753.
Members wishing to bring a guest are asked to book similarly.
The committee plans to hold a Spring Lunch for members: date to be announced.
