Meet: 1015 hrs prompt, Bodleian Library Main Entrance
Cost: £12 per person for the tour
The Bodleian is one of the great libraries of the world and was an essential research resource for Powell’s biography of John Aubrey. The tour, which will last about 1½ hours, will include the basement and reading rooms.
Following the tour we will adjourn across the road to the King’s Arms. Even if you can’t come on the tour you will be welcome to join us at the King’s Arms for drink, food, good company and Powell chat.
Advanced booking (with payment) essential for the tour as places are strictly limited; please contact the Hon. Secretary. All welcome.
Collage for Fun Afternoon
Collage, which was one of Powell’s passions, is an often neglected artistic technique. Artist Laura Miller will lead a practical session on collaging for fun. There will be a small charge on the day for materials and refreshments. All welcome. Advanced booking advised (if only so we order enough tea and biscuits!). For further details and booking please contact the Hon. Secretary.
