An illustrated talk “Exploring the Indigo Trail: art, writing and journeys of all kinds” to be given by Jenny Balfour-Paul.

Much in demand as a speaker, we are delighted to have her; this is certainly a date for your diary!
All are welcome. DA members £2, non-members £3, but there will be an extra bowl where those who have enjoyed any of the Section’s zoom talks may make donations if they wish.
