News from the Groups

Art Group

Would all members and potential members of this group please note that in the New Year we will be changing not just the venue for meetings, but the dates.

After Christmas we will meet in The Tabernacle on The Hayes on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month.

The first meeting there will be on 14th January at 10.30am till 12.30pm.

Details of what we will be painting and the materials to bring for each class are available on the website or contact Julie Guest at art.group@cardiffu3a.org.uk.

Art Appreciation

The Meeting on December 12th will now be in the OLD LIBRARY on the first floor. Please enter by the door facing Howells. Mary will talk about Castles.

Music Appreciation

The Music Appreciation meeting has been shifted from the beginning of December to the 18th , still at 1.30pm, but in the Church itself of the City URC, rather than upstairs.

Bill Haskins, who is the organist of the church as well as being a horn player for the National Orchestra of Wales, will be giving us a talk and a demonstration of the organ, choosing music appropriate for the time of year. Hope you can join us! Same entrance to the building, but go through the swing doors to your right instead of climbing the stairs.
