Cancelled. We warmly thank all of our player supporters and look forward to providing you with a wonderful lunch in 2021 after another season of Bridge playing
Annual Bridge Lunch organised and run by Liz Strang in aid of the Friends will take place this year on the 19th April at the Bridge Club. The lunch is the culmination of a Bridge League that this year involves 10 groups of 6 couples playing. It is a very popular competition which attracts enthusiasts every year.
Some may remember a very successful event we ran in October 2017 that involved Nicola Mills singing Opera for a group of about 60 diners. Everyone who attended marvelled at Nicola’s voice and her charisma. She has now devised a new show which focuses on Julie Andrews’ singing and acting career. She will be performing at the Angel Centre in Tonbridge and has kindly offered to share some of the profits of the evening with the Friends.
A new Art talk to follow on from a very successful evening of Picasso and his Women led by Liz Strang. This is a taste of what is to come:
CEZANNE: PROVINCIAL FROM PROVENCE TO FATHER OF MODERN ART.
A Provencal from birth whose love of his native land was a constant, Cezanne painted determinedly and single-mindedly following his own path. He never gained entry to l’Ecole des Beaux Arts nor had a work accepted by the Salon. Difficult, touchy and anti-social, but capable of strong friendships (Zola and Pissarro), success eluded him until his old age. Then, confronted by his strong colours, single brushstrokes and original viewpoint, Picasso, Braque, and others were inspired to call him the “Father of Modern Art.”
