Help us launch our new Fylde DFAS at Night events!

Published on 24 February 2013 Under Latest News

We are delighted to announce the first of what we hope will be a successful new initiative – Fylde DFAS at Night. We would like to encourage some younger participation – from those who are currently in full-time employment and unable to attend our afternoon lectures – to get involved and be inspired, like us, by arts education, conservation and heritage, so that when they retire, they will automatically become DFAS members.

With this in mind, we are planning to hold some evening events to which you are all welcome, but which will also be open to the public. If you have family members or neighbours whom you think might be interested, please do invite them to come and join us.

The first of these will take place at the Glendower Hotel on Thursday 25 April, and will have a local focus –  Curtain Up: the Story of Blackpool’s Jewel in the Crown: Matcham’s Grand Theatre. The speaker will be the dynamic and engaging Honorary Archivist, Linda Tolson MBE. In addition, there will be a fascinating opportunity to view the archive, presented by the theatre’s Vice President, Geoff Tolson.

Do come and join us. Tickets are £16 each, including cheese and wine, and are available at the Fylde DFAS lectures and also on sale at the Glendower Hotel.
