The Spectrum IFA Group again co-sponsored an excellent Arts Society de la Frontera lecture on 13th December 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 and Jonathan Goodman, who attended along with our co-sponsors Richard Brown and Lewis Cohen from Tilney Investment Management. Tilney also very kindly hosted a lunch afterwards for the committee, the DFAS Chairman and the Lecturer.
The Arts Society is a leading international Arts charity which opens up the world of the arts through a network of local societies (such as here in the Costa del Sol) and national events throughout the world.
With inspiring monthly lectures given by some of the country’s top experts, together with days of special interest, educational visits and cultural holidays, it is a great way to learn, have fun and make new and lasting friendships.
At this event, around 110 attendees were entertained by a talk on the art of Leonard da Vinci and the Mona Lisa entitled “The Woman who ate her Husband” by Nicole Mezey who is one of the UK’s top experts in this field. She was excellent and kept the audience gripped and entertained with her knowledge and humour.
The talk was followed by a drinks reception which included a free raffle for prizes including CH produced Champagne, mince pies and a Christmas pudding, together with a fully illustrated book on Leornardo. Tilney as usual excelled themselves by providing the top prize of a wooden set of candle holders designed and beautifully crafted by Viscount Linley, the Queen’s nephew, which caused a further stir after their last two years’ prizes!
All in all, a great turnout and a very successful event at a wonderful venue. The Spectrum IFA Group were very proud to be involved with such a fantastic organisation and we hope to have the opportunity to do so again in 2018.
