Tonbridge Art Group outings
latest event outing
Following the success of our holiday to Liverpool in 2019 Barbara Myatt has arranged a similar tour of the Potteries in North Staffordshire for the Autumn of 2021.
As well as the printed brochures, of which she have copies, a copy is attached below & full details of your tour can be seen online. Click on the View Your Tour tab at www.tailored-travel.co.uk and quote tnba211.
The online version of the tour allows members to view and share with friends and family all the details of the tour and also to print a copy of the brochure.
Please note that no one can book onto the tour online – they must still complete and return the booking form with their deposit payment to Barbara. However, once booked on the tour, they are invited on the invoice they receive from the travel company to pay their final balance online. They can, of course, still pay their final balance by cheque or by debit card on the phone.
Several people have already expressed an interest in joining this tour. Please let Barbara know, if you haven’t already done so if you would like to go, particularly if you would like a single room as there are not many of these still available. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Barbara.
The art and history of Liverpool – Short break in September 2019
19 art lovers set out early on Sunday 22nd September in a coach bound for Liverpool, via Keddlestone Hall in Derbyshire, to spend 4 days exploring the art & history of the city. Their very comfortable hotel, the Mercure Atlantic Tower, was perfectly situated, across the road from the famous Liver Building, with a view across the Mersey to watch the Belfast & Isle of Man ferries & occasional cruise liners come & go.
With a Blue Badge guide to show them the sights & expert gallery guides to show them the art, they were in good hands. The tour took them to the Walker Art Gallery, St George’s Hall (a magnificent concert hall with a criminal court & a civil court at either end), the two cathedrals (Anglican & Catholic), Port Sunlight Village & the Lady Lever Gallery, Princes Road Synagogue, Albert Dock with Tate Liverpool, the Museum of Liverpool & the Slavery Museum, then out to Crosby Beach to see Anthony Gormley’s “Another Place”, finishing up with a visit to Salford Quays & The Lowry Gallery on the way home.
