Table Tennis (5424/sport)

Have fun and improve your fitness and coordination at the same time. Beginners welcome.

The World of Art (46218/art)

A guide to art galleries of the world - essentially Europe and the U.S, their collections and highlights, as well as costs and practical information. Inevitably along the way we meet new and familiar artists and movements and share our enthusiasms and not! The leader provides powerpoints and virtual tours/selection of highlights and books for reference but there is plenty of opportunity for members to present brief guides to their favourite galleries and artists and all are encouraged to bring their books/photos and recollections. Last year we learnt a lot from one another and made friends as well as visiting Manchester's Art Gallery.

Handels Heroines (54131/music)

Although he was never romantically linked with anyone, male or female, Handel showed, in his operas and oratorios, a good understanding of women. The group will hear some beautiful music written for heroines and a few villainesses, and will learn something of the singers and how Baroque opera worked.

Crown Green Bowls (Group 1) (54186/sport)

Instruction and guidance on how to play Crown Green Bowls.

Crown Green Bowls (Group 2) (54187/sport)

Instruction and guidance on how to play Crown Green Bowls.

Railway Group (54204/indoor)

Talks on a wide variety of Railway and related topics from historical to modern mainly British but some foreign content included. The talks are given by a mix of group members and guests - some from the railway industry.
