Art historian to give talk in King's Lynn
A popular art historian will be giving a talk at St George's Guildhall in Lynn this July.
Andrew Graham Dixon is a regular feature of the King's Lynn Festival programme and this year the author, broadcaster and lecturer will present two talks which will shed new light on the history of art.
The festival is renowned for the quality and breadth of the classical music performed in the town every summer, but the spoken word is also a significant feature of the programme.
On Wednesday, July 20 he will discuss the principles and practice of art appreciation, exploring some of his favourite paintings and at a second event that day he will explore the tougher side of impressionism.
Two more popular personalities will be on the Guildhall stage on Tuesday, July 19 at 7.30pm. Kit and McConnel, one of Britain’s best-loved cabaret duos, return with their musical silliness and improvisation.
The Royal Geographical Society lectures regularly bring expert speakers on a wide range of topics to West Norfolk and their guest at this summer’s festival is BBC Coast presenter Nick Crane who, on Tuesday, July 26, will present an epic story of survival and science set in remote mountain camps and observatories.
The festival box office is at the Alive Corn Exchange.
