RECENT EVENTS

Tuesday 9th April 2019

PRESENTATION AT OXTED ARTS SOCIETY

Jennifer Sturdy gave the post annual lunch talk,
to about 90 members of the Oxted Arts Society.
The chairman had expressed an interest in seeing the
Mesopotamian costume and jewellery,
so Jennifer gave the Powerpoint presentation
about the making of the lyres, whilst being dressed for the part.

The silver lyre was on display too.
The audience was fascinated by the story of the making of the replica lyres, and asked questions about the materials, the stringing and the performances.

Jennifer gave a brief recitation of Shiduri's advice to Gilgamesh,
but it was not the forum nor the time for a performance
.

Incidentally, in 2018 Jennifer became an accredited lecturer for The Arts Society (formerly NADFAS). Lectures can be booked either through this website, or through the
Arts Society https://theartssociety.org/
