The Spectrum IFA Group again co-sponsored an excellent Arts Society de la Frontera lecture on 17th October at the San Roque Golf & Country Club on the Costa del Sol. We were represented by one of our local and long-serving advisers, Charles Hutchinson, who attended along with our co-sponsors Richard Brown and Harriette Collings from Tilney Investment Management. Tilney were invited to a private lunch afterwards where they met potential clients.
The Arts Society de la Frontera (previously named the Decorative & Fine Arts Society) is a leading arts charity which opens up the world of the arts through a network of local societies (such as in Spain) and national events throughout the world.
With inspiring monthly lectures given by some of the world’s top experts, together with days of special interest, educational visits and cultural holidays, the Arts Society is a great way to learn, have fun and make new and lasting friendships.
At this event, over 175 attendees (probably a record Spectrum sponsored attendance) were entertained by a talk on Gold in paintings and wall coverings entitled “As Good as Gold” by Alexander Epps who is one of the UK’s top experts in this field. She gave an excellent talk and engaged the audience for almost an hour!
The talk was followed by the sponsored drinks reception which included a free raffle for prizes including CH produced Champagne, wine, a tea set and a lovely coffee table book on Gold craftsmanship. Tilney also supplied a cocktail shaker designed and beautifully crafted by Viscount Linley, the Queen’s nephew, which caused a further stir after their last event’s prize!
All in all, a great turnout and a very successful event at a wonderful venue. The Spectrum IFA Group are very proud to be involved with such a fantastic organisation and we are booked to sponsor further lectures this December and March next year.
