Judy Garland - in her own words

Tue, 15/02/2022 - 7:15pm

Judy Garland, born Frances Ethel Gumm, was one of the greatest stars of the twentieth century. From her breakthrough role as Dorothy in ‘The Wizard of Oz’ to her untimely death in London in 1969, she was rarely out of the news, out of the gossip columns or off the radio or TV. That her private life was far from happy is a matter of public record. In this talk, illustrated with many of her recordings, we will hear from Judy herself, in interview and in private.
The talk will start promptly at 7.30 with participants being allowed into the zoom room 10 minutes in advance. To give the best experience participants will be muted with cameras turned off during the talk.

Kristian Day took over the Broadway Gallery in Leys Avenue just before the art industry was devastated by the spread of Covid-19, meaning his plans for the space and the Arts in Hertfordshire ended before they could begin. Over the last two years however the gallery has gone from imminent closure to the centre of a thriving art scene with an ambitious vision for the future.

Singing Carols by Candlelight

We had a lovely time yesterday at the candlelit St Mary Magdalene, Caldecote. We sang carols, with harmonium accompaniment, while nibbling mince pies and quaffing mulled wine.

The church was beautifully decorated by LALG's very own Flower Arranging Group. The photos show one of the window sills and the show-stopping arrangement on the font.
