EASING RESTRICTIONS: Chorleywood Fine Arts wants to regain The ‘Heineken’ Factor 

 Published on: 11th April 2021   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Chorleywood Fine Arts is hoping to return to ‘real life’ lectures as soon as Government guidelines permit and also wants to regain its ‘Heineken factor.’ 

The society organises several day trips each year, to museums, art exhibitions and even private houses, many of which are quite unusual and some of which are normally out of bounds to the general public – the society’s so-called ‘Heineken factor.’ 

Previous ‘exclusive’ trips have included visits to Southside House, a 17th Century property on Wimbledon Common; and the Parker Library at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. 

Chorleywood Fine Arts previously met for its monthly lectures at the Junction, although lectures were delivered via Zoom during lockdown. 

At each meeting, members have the privilege of listening to a beautifully illustrated talk by an expert who is passionate about their subject. 

The talks cover subjects as diverse as Picasso, the Impressionists, royal jewellery, art on ocean liners and on May 10 and June 14 respectively, the work of Ruskin and the bronzes of Benin. 

In October, the society is planning a 3-night trip to Cardiff, with highlights including Cardiff Castle and the National Museum of Wales. 

Members pay an annual subscription and newcomers can sample a lecture for a small fee before joining. 

Chairman Andrew Walker said: ‘The blend of subjects in our programme exposes members to the less familiar. 

‘Members often say to me: “I nearly did not come, I knew nothing of the subject, but I am so glad I did, it was fascinating.” For more information click here.
