The Spectrum IFA Group again co-sponsored an excellent Arts Society de La Frontera lecture on 19th February 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 Currencies Direct, represented by area manager Ignacio Ortega and Alexandra Derudder. Also present was the society’s European Chairman Jo Ward.

The Arts Society is a leading global arts charity which opens up the world of the arts through a network of local societies 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 130 attendees were entertained by a talk entitled ‘John Singer Sargent, master of the society portrait’ by Mary Alexander, who is one of the UK’s top experts on this subject. She gave an excellent lecture which was highly informative and educational, opening up the artist’s world to show his versatility away from not just being a portraitist and his much travelled life.

The talk was followed by a drinks reception which included a free raffle for prizes, including a CH supplied lovely coffee table book on the artist, champagne and an elegant pot plant. Currencies Direct also supplied a presentation bottle of brandy.

All in all, a great turnout and a very successful event at a wonderful venue which has just been renovated throughout; looking through the windows, one can see the golf course completely dug up and redesigned.

The Spectrum IFA Group was very proud to be involved with such a fantastic organisation during its current global expansion and we hope to have the opportunity to do so again.

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.
