Iconic Biba: is it timeless and ageless? Come and hear the inside story from Lorraine Neale (Chairman of The Friends of St Anne’s Church) who was privileged to have worked with Barbara Hulanicki, the founder, during this innovative time and continues to work with her today as her Managing Agent. Lorraine will bring along a few of her Biba Clothes that she wore in the 1970’s. Wednesday 16 October. Starts at 7.30pm Tickets – £20 to include nibbles and a glass of wine.

Christmas traditions: a celebration of festive lore. (There seems a magic in the very name of Christmas – Charles Dickens). Talk and Book signing by George Goodwin, MA, FRHistS, FRSA. The traditions of Christmas seem to have a timeless quality when we first experience them as children, but, as George Goodwin shows, though many are very ancient, others are surprisingly modern. In his highly illustrated and witty presentation, George takes in the origins of the carol service, the role of St Francis of Assisi, the Puritan fear of the mince pie and much more. Saturday 16th November 2019. Starts at 11.00am (Coffee served at 10.30am) Tickets – £20 to include coffee, a light lunch and a glass of wine.
