Online talk: The Remarkable World of Joyce Grenfell – Lucky Amateur or Consummate Professional? By Joanna Lavelle

Wed, 12/05/2021 - 7:30pm

Actress Joanna Lavelle will be exploring whether Joyce Grenfell was just a lucky amateur or a consummate professional who continued to develop her skills from her first professional appearance in 1939. This richly-illustrated talk will cover the start of Joyce’s 'showbiz' career along with a look at her family life.

Joanna has researched Joyce Grenfell’s work for over thirty years through her one-woman tribute show, 'Choice Joyce'.

Fairfield Park Tours

The walking tour of Fairfield Park and its history will resume later in the year when life returns to normal and we can include greater numbers for each tour.
As we have a considerable waiting list these tours will be limited to LALG members only.

Zoom talk: From hill walking in the UK to High Camp in the Himalayas by Geoff Smith

Wednesday, 14/04/21 - 7:30 p.m.

Mountain climbing is a popular sport and our presenter, Geoff Smith, has climbed some of the best-known mountain ranges. During this talk he will share his experience with us. From his first ascent of Snowdon at the age 16 to other UK Mountain areas, the French and Swiss Alps, New England, New Zealand and the highest mountain range he has climbed, the Himalayas.

Geoff will also talk to us about some of the equipment used - for safety, exploration and just in case there is an emergency.

Concert: Masa Tayama, Piano

LALG and the Settlement are delighted to announce the sixth in a series of musical events. An online performance by accomplished pianist Masa Tayama.

Unfortunately lockdown continues to deny us the opportunity to be able to sell tickets for a live performance at this time, but we are however planning for performances in the Kincaid Hall and hope that our May concert (details to follow) will be the second in the series which we can broadcast live, in front of a live audience (subject to no changes in the roadmap).

Come and join us in meeting and listening to one of today’s most accomplished pianists, who is much in demand across Europe and Japan.
