We have received details from the U3A national office of some events that have been arranged. Most are in London, though
there are also two events at Bristol and Cardiff, which could possibly be of interest. Details are available at coffee mornings, but if
they are interested, members can log onto the following website: www.u3a.org.uk/events. There is one event in Manchester at the Whitworth
Art Gallery on Thursday 4 October. This is entitled “Unravelling the Whitworth” and is described as a day of hands-on discovery to unravel
the secrets of the gallery’s textile and wallpaper collection. There will be talks from curators, a tour and a hands-on session facilitated
by an artist, with welcome refreshments. The day runs from 10.00am to 4.00pm and costs £27.50.
