The Arts Society Gainsborough

David Cross, the intended speaker on Beatrix Potter and her Scientific Watercolours, was unable to travel to the Trinity Arts Centre to deliver the May lecture to The Arts Society Gainsborough due to a train strike.

His place was filled at the 11th hour by Mr Steve King, radio broadcaster and programmer, who has worked with many well-known popular music artists.

An engaging public speaker and accompanied by tracks from the greatest song writers of the 1960s, his inside stories blew the lid off many familiar lyrics. An unexpected delight to end the first half of the year’s arts programme!

Lectures will resume after the summer break on 7th September with Lucia Gahlin presenting ’The Colossal Art and Architecture of Egypt’s Boldest Pharaoh’ – an exploration of the art and architecture of this ruler’s particularly long reign during a golden age of Egypt’s pharaonic history.

The Trinity Arts Centre opens doors from 12.00pm with a bar for hot and cold drinks. For membership and to book a light lunch, email

Visitors are always welcome, with a view to joining after a couple of visits. Entrance £7.00 on the door. For further information contact Chairman Leslie Whiting on 07871 459803.
