Stories In Stained Glass @ The Arts Society, New Milton

Thurs 8th Feb 18

Stained glass tells stories. It has been used to play politics, bribe bishops, recruit soldiers and tell jokes. The most remarkable subjects appear in its panes, from miracles to Mandela, tanks to Tiffany, Burne-Jones’s water-closet to Churchill’s cigar. It is a powerful way to create atmosphere and send a message – not just in churches, but in airports, sports centres, town halls, banks, libraries and shops – and this talk will include a look at stories in our area: our saints and our sinners.

The lecture will be held on Thursday 8th February 2018 at the Memorial Centre, Whitefield Road, New Milton. Coffee is served from 10am, and the lecture commences at 10.30am. Visitors are most welcome (£6). For more information contact Peter Ronan on 01425 638200 or visit their website: http://tasnm.org
