Christmas in 30 Works of Arts is a fully illustrated talk by historian, writer and Queen’s Mill Manager John Heywood. Using a varied collection of images both religious and secular produced over centuries, the lecture touches on many of the aspects of the festive season and is both entertaining and informative. From the paintings of the nativity to Hollywood films, images both old and new have helped shaped our views of Christmas.

John has been speaking on history and art for many years and is a regular writer and broadcaster. The talk is free. Just turn up at Queen’s Mill. Light seasonal refreshments will be served.

Why not take a couple of hours out of your busy Christmas schedule and relax at the iconic Queen’s Mill and enjoy Christmas in 30 Works of Art?
