U3A Feb Meeting

The next meeting of the Somerton U3A will be held on Fri 22nd Mar 2019, there will be a talk about the Festival of Britain 1951 from Michael Denney.

The Festival was a wonderful event held in London and across the country. With buildings, art and design by the best young designers and artists keen to express their enthusiasm for the new post war age the Festival was full of life, colour and modern design.
The talk will consider the main events in London, particularly the exhibitions on the South Bank of the Thames and other less well remembered events from across the country. With many illustrations taken from photographs from 1951 this is always a popular talk with those who remember the post war period or have an interest in architecture and design from the period.

Monthly meetings normally take place on the fourth Friday of each month at the Edgar Community Hall, Somerton starting at 10am with coffee (30p) and chat. After any notices the main event begins at 10.30am and finishes by 12 noon latest. Meetings are free for members, visitors £1.50 each.
