Hi

all those who have shown interest in this trip either by text , telephone calls  or emails can you please pay asap?

Thank you

Lytham – August 17th

We hope to visit  the beautiful Byzantine church, Lytham Fairhaven U.R.C, in the morning.

We are to have a tour of Lytham Hall after lunch at the nice café on site  and a roam around the grounds to view the posters which are rather large and outdoors.

Shifting Sands, by Nicky Thomson, is an art trail set within the grounds of Lytham Hall. It’s a collection of 12  new works celebrating the art of the travel poster, which has strong historical links to the Fylde – the coming of the railway heralded the start of tourism for the Fylde.

Coach from Maghull Square 9.30 am.  Cost £27

Tudors At The Walker

This event is now full.  The Walker have at last confirmed they will do two back to back tours on June 23rd at 3pm and 4pm. This has been a battle of will’s with the Walker.

If you let me know which you prefer beforehand hopefully it will work out ten and ten.

If we all arrive at 2pm, we can sort it at the venue.

Take care – Maureen

All the statues you know and love?

But don’t know who did them? Well here is your chance to find out.

Looking to squeeze this in ( as we are fully booked up until then) Friday 29th July, it ends 31st July.

Who hasn’t posed by Eric Morecombe’s statue  in Morecombe?  Graham Ibbeson is the man who created it and many more. From Barnsley, inspired by Graham’s workshop, figures include celebrated performers such as Eric Morecambe, Benny Hill, Laurel & Hardy and for the very first time Grahams latest sculpture of Ken Dodd with Diddyman, Dickie Mint, on display by kind special permission from Lady Dodd. We should be tickled by this exhibition.

Glassworks  Gallery, Barnsley  is quite small so after lunch we will do a short tour of the town to spot many more of his works.

Coach to Barnsley from Maghull Square 9am.return 4pm.cost depends on numbers but wont be too much and gallery is free entry. Please book at desk on Tuesdays – Maureen
