Stanley Spencer Museum Cookham
Thursday 13 September 2018

Come and join us for a day out on the banks of the Thames in lovely Berkshire.

After a short coach ride from Charter Way, the cultural part of the day will be a Talk and conducted Walk when we learn about the genius that was Stanley Spencer. We will be taken by one of the gallery’s experts around the heart of Cookham village and to the river path to see the settings of many of Spencer's most famous works and which provided inspiration for many of his pictures. The guide will provide illuminating information and anecdotes for our enjoyment, and will carry a large display file so that we can appreciate the comparison between the scene today and the version that Spencer painted.

The sociable side of our visit will take the form of a two – course lunch at the renowned Ferry in an idyllic setting on the banks of the River Thames.
