Peace through understanding and cooperation


"Thank you for the wonderful lecture. The members were full of praise and we gave it a rare outstanding rating. As all really good lectures should, yours did more than inform and entertain; it provoked, stimulated and inspired."


"Thank you so very much for a truly great lecture last Thursday. The feed back has all been incredible positive and I think you have made it to the top slot 
for best lecture over the last 12 months.

Members really do appreciate a well-structured talk which is so much easier to follow, and the fact that you are able to impart all your knowledge in such an erudite, 
but ‘easy to understand’ manner means 
you are already on the list for a return visit."

JULIA TARENTO (Grayshott Arts Soc.)

Your lecture was very well received and I’ve heard some wonderful comments. It was interesting to compare Seago with other artists I had never heard of.  It really was superb. Thank you very much on behalf of Woodbridge” 

LINDA COULTON (Programme Sec. Woodbridge Arts Soc.)

(Society member's comment: “Very well researched and articulately delivered with depth and affection.”)

"I wanted to thank you for two wonderful lectures on Tutankhamun. Our members were enthralled and all commented on how well you researched the topic and illustrated that incredible civilisation . . "


"I just wanted to personally thank you for your most enjoyable and inspirational lecture this evening on Edward Seago & artists. The hour just flew past and the evening came to a premature close. Tonight's insight was awe inspiring, I've got hooked to google mail looking up some of the works shown this evening and can't wait to get my paints out."



"I want to say a big thank you for a very special lecture and lots of food for thought! We saw friends in the evening and discussed many aspects of your ideas. Comments from the members were also very favourable and the fact that our old audience could hear you so well is a benefit too!"

MARON MAUDER (DFAS Lecture Secretary)

"I would like to thank you so much for a wonderful lecture. It was entertaining, amusing, informative and thought provoking. Your answers to questions were most impressive."

SUSAN TAYLOR (DFAS Lecture Secretary) 

"Thank you so much for such a delightful and informative talk on Seago. Your slides of Seago?s work are stunning - we have rarely seen such wonderful reproductions of works of art. I could tell by the warmth of the applause how much your insightful presentation was appreciated by the audience."

FIONA MUSTERS (Norwich DFAS Lecture Secretary)

"Thank you very much for your recent lecture on Canaletto. All the committee reported on the excellence of your talk which has put them in a learned state of mind ready for our visit to Woburn Abbey! We very much appreciate you stepping in . . . and hope you will come back and talk to us in Kenwood again"

CHRISTINE RILEY  (DFAS Lecture Secretary)
