Lecture: The Twelve Art Days of Christmas
From milking maids by Vermeer to Hogarthian leaping lords, Renaissance holy doves to nineteenth-century French hens and medieval golden rings, this wide reaching talk will attempt to match great works of art with the often bizarre lyrics of the popular carol revealing their secrets and context along the way.
Ticket £5 / £8 includes a glass of mulled wine and mince pie.
Doors open at 6pm, starts at 6.30pm
