"Also, because our excellent lecturers often travel from a considerable distance away we are dependant on transport links being reliable and in current circumstances this is not guaranteed.

"However, there are benefits at this time of year in that we don’t have to venture out in the bad weather!

This month’s talk will take place on Thursday, January 13 at 2pm and will be given by a very familiar face to all fans of the BBC’s Antique Roadshow, Mark Hill.

Mark has appeared on numerous antiques programmes on television and has been a regular expert on the Antiques Roadshow since 2007.

His talk to TASKL next week will look at the Victorian craze of cartes de visite, small photographic portraits which people gave out in their thousands.

They were the selfies of their day, giving a fascinating insight about the people and the period and no doubt this experienced broadcaster will be his usual entertaining self.

TASKL members will be sent the Zoom link automatically but anyone is very welcome join the webinar as a ‘visitor’ for £7 by booking a place via info@theartssocietykingslynn.org
