    Developing the theme of the Play Readings that were organised for the enjoyment of members of both the Oxford and Cambridge Societies in Paris, we have organised a Poetry or Prose reading evening, on Wednesday 6th January 2021 at 7pm.

    This date has been chosen both as it coincides with the First Wednesday in 2021, and so we hope will help compensate for the continued absence of Monthly Drinks evenings, and also it is Epiphany which might offer a theme, if you choose to adopt it, for your reading.

    Each participant will be invited to select their choice of readings, in English, ideally each up to three minutes long. For the more adventurous, you can of course write your own. We expect you will have the opportunity of reading at least twice.

    This event will be hosted on Zoom. A meeting link will be sent to all registered attendees two or three days in advance of the event. Since numbers will be limited to 20, you are encouraged to register early by booking your place in the events section of the CamSoc website.

    THE SUBTLE SCIENCE AND EXACT ART OF COLOUR IN ENGLISH GARDEN DESIGN

    by Timothy Walker

    PADFAS (The Arts Society Paris) invite you to their Live online Zoom lecture Thursday 3rd December 2020 at 2.00 p.m.

    In 1888 Gertrude Jekyll wrote a short but seminal article in The Garden in which she urged the readers to “remember that in a garden we are painting a picture”. As an accomplished watercolour artist, Miss Jekyll was familiar with the principles of using colours, but she felt that in gardens these principles “had been greatly neglected”. This talk looks at how to apply these principles in designing a border, but it also looks at the ways in which a border is different from a painting. However, it goes further than this and looks at how contemporary work of the likes of Turner, Monet, Rothko, Jackson Pollack, and Hockney evolved in parallel with ideas about what a garden or border should look like.


    Since 1986 Timothy Walker has given 1,500 public lectures. This was originally part of his work as director of the Oxford University Botanic Garden from 1988 to 2014. Botanic gardens are often described as living museums, and garden curators lecture about them in the same way as museum curators talk about their collections. Since 2014 he has been a college lecturer and tutor at Somerville College Oxford. Gardens are often thought of a place where science and art meet on equal terms. Timothy Walker’s lectures investigate this relationship.

    You will receive a link to connect the lecture on Wednesday 2nd December.

    The zoom meeting "room" will be open from 13:30 to allow time for you to join the meeting, and chat to other members, within the limits of zoom capabilities.
    At 14:00 all microphones will be put on mute while the lecture is in progress.
    Please note that muting is necessary to avoid interruption to the lecture.
