Celebration for 30 years of the Ascot society
Friday 09 August 2019

To celebrate 30 years since the founding of  Ascot DFAS - now The Arts Society Ascot - we have organised a special visit to Royal Holloway College on Friday 9th August.

We start with a tour of Founders Building (right) - one of the world’s most spectacular university buildings, and home to the famous Picture Gallery containing Thomas Holloway’s fine collection of Victorian paintings, and to the beautiful chapel.  Our tour will begin at 11am at the chapel, after which we will have lunch at 12.30 in the Picture Gallery. After lunch the curator will give us a talk about the pictures that surround us in the Gallery.

Lunch will be two courses with a glass of wine. Additional wine will be available to buy by the bottle, and if some members would like to organise their own tables of eight, please do so and let us know.  Otherwise, tables will be arranged, and there will be a welcoming place for you.

Tickets are £46 and will be available from Anne and Alison at lecture meetings and through the website to members; friends and partners are welcome to join our celebration.
