Clevedon is a seaside resort on the Bristol Channel with easy access from the M5 at Junction 20.
Our attractive town, which has a population of about 21,000, is a vibrant mix of the old and the new, with a good selection of shops for all tastes and a wide assortment of excellent restaurants to relish.
Fantastic views are to be had across the water to South Wales along with interesting walks and one of the most famous sunsets in the country.
This all goes to making Clevedon a special place to enjoy, so
welcome to our town.
The Magic of Minack
This is an illustrated talk on how one woman, Rowena Cade, created an internationally renowned theatre at the bottom of her Cornish garden.
NOTE: change of speaker and subject
The talk on doom paintings describes the representation of the Last Judgement and explains the various elements of the subject. Tim will explain how these paintings evolved and show examples both from wall paintings and paintings on board and canvas. He will look at the techniques used and how the artists solved the problems of awkward locations onto which they had to project their work. Finally he will examine what happened at the Reformation, the Civil War and in Victorian church restoration.
