A VISIT TO BATH  April 17th 2018

The visit included No.1 The Royal Crescent, a Georgian town house  decorated and furnished just as it might have been during the period 1176-1796. The rooms feature historic furniture, pictures and objects that reveal what life was like for Bath’s fashionable residents both upstairs and downstairs.

There was also an exhibition entitled; Women’s Suffrage 100: Freedom and Fight in Bath and a short film featuring an imagined conversation between Bath suffragette Mary Blathwayt and social reformer and literary critic Elizabeth Montagu.

The party also visited the Holburne Museum, home to fine and decorative arts around the collection of Sir William Holburne. There were two art exhibitions: Lighting Up the Stage: Stars of the Georgian Theatre; Somerset Maugham’s private collection of theatrical prints and secondly, the first major exhibition of Anthony Fry’s work – Fry (1927-2016). Fry lived and worked near Bath for 60 years and became a huge commercial success in Britain and America with his evocative landscapes.
