Stella Lyons - Painting Winter: Snow Scenes in Art
'I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape – the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show’ – Andrew Wyeth. Magical, festive, beautiful, harsh, cruel and bleak; this talk will explore the variety of interpretations of this season through the works of Bruegel, Caspar David Friedrich, Monet, and Andrew Wyeth.

The December musical will be a production of this Olivier award-winning, Madness inspired show, featuring a large cast and popular songs such as ‘Baggy Trousers’ and ‘Embarrassment’.
The story follows Camden lad Joe Casey who, on the night of his 16th birthday, makes a decision that will change his life. Trying to impress Sarah, the girl of his dreams, Joe breaks into a building development overlooking his home on Casey Street. But things take a turn for the worse as the police turn up. Joe’s life splits into two; the Good Joe who stays and gives himself up and the Bad Joe who flees and leaves Sarah to run from the police.
Our House follows the two paths that Joe’s life could take after that fateful night in a wildly entertaining show featuring some of Madness’ greatest hits.
