Arts Society Cavendish Annual Accounts

The Annual Accounts and Trustees Report for year ending 31st December 2019 have now been approved by our independent auditor and the Society’s committee in line with our constitution. Normally we would have presented them at our AGM for discussion with the membership. However, as you are aware, that due to COVID19 we have been unable to schedule an AGM to date. If you have any queries please contact the Chair or Treasurer by email. To download the accounts for the year ending 31st December 2019 please click here.




We are sorry to report the death of Fiona MacCarthy. Fiona, who lived in Hathersage, has spoken to the Society in the past and appeared at both Dovedale and Buxton Festivals. Her books on Morris, Burne Jones Byron and Gill are legendary. Here is a link to her obituary in the Guardian.

 

The National Portrait Gallery in London is to close for three years for revamp. The gallery’s works are to tour regional galleries across the UK before it reopens in 2023.

Some of the exhibitions and projects which are planned include York Art Gallery, the Holburne Museum in Bath, the Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle, National Museums Liverpool and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh.
