The Spectrum IFA Group again co-sponsored an excellent Arts Society de La Frontera lecture on 20th November 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 Prudential International in the form of George Forsythe.
The Arts Society is a leading global 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 UK’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 120 attendees were entertained by a talk on Stolen Masterpieces: The Most Sensational Art Thefts in History by Shauna Isaacs who is one of the UK’s top experts in this field. She gave an excellent lecture revealing to us the history and reasons behind great art thefts. She is also a particular expert in the Nazi thefts of Art prior to and during the Second World War which she covered in a later Arts Society lecture that same day.
The talk was followed by a drinks reception which included free raffle for prizes including a CH supplied book on Stolen Masterpieces, Christmas crackers and mince pies. Prudential International donated a bottle of 12 year old whisky.
All in all, a great turnout and a very successful event at a wonderful venue, although we were in temporary accommodation as the main clubhouse is under renovation. The Spectrum IFA Group was very proud to be involved with such a fantastic organization during its current global expansion and we hope to have the opportunity to do so again.
