CULTURE CATCH UPS 2021
During January and February we have been running a weekly series of discussion groups about ‘all-things culture’ over Zoom on Wednesdays at 11am https://www.blackheathhalls.com/whats-on/culture-catch-ups-4/
‘It was really lovely to see your smiling face today and I found the conversations so inspiring, a lovely light in a monotonous world. It seems so long ago that we were able to go into an art gallery and get inspiration and have our visual senses awoken.Thanks for running this program.’ (Participant)
