28/01/2017 to 06/05/2017 ART DISPLAY - RAY ATKINS, THE READING YEARS
 READING MUSEUM

The painter Ray Atkins works on a monumental scale. He will be 80 this year and still works outside, in places that he loves, come rain or shine, in the same driven way that he has since the 1960s. Between 1968 and 1974 he lived in Reading, teaching at the University. He produced an impressive body of work in response to the dramatic changes going on in the town centre. The Inner Distribution Road, the Butts Shopping Centre and the Civic Centre were all constructed during this time and Atkins observed their progress and made huge, expressive paintings on site.

25/03/2017 DAVID STARKEY - HENRY VIII
 KENTON THEATRE, HENLEY-ON-THAMES

Henry VIII is the only king whose image we remember. He bestrides our history like a colossus and the decisions he took still reverberate today. The Reformation is the first Brexit; his ministers devised the doctrine of parliamentary sovereignty and his tumultuous personal life pitted religion against politics as brutally as in our own age of Isis. In this lecture David Starkey draws on his unique knowledge of Henryís reign on the one hand, and his insights as a leading commentator on modern politics on the other, to both illuminate the Tudor age and our own.
