Lunchtime Talk – 13th February, 2019

Our next Lunchtime Talk promises to provide an interesting insight into the world of theatrical management, in the company of a “well-kent” Glasgow man and Gilbert & Sullivan expert, Walter Paul.

Places can be booked via the CLL office and we are sure to spend an entertaining afternoon at the Insight Institute learning more about a life spent on the stage


Time for Tea – Event Now Full

Join us for an Afternoon Tea on Tuesday 5th March 2019 at the Trades Hall of Glasgow, as we celebrate 30 years as a unique Learning in Later Life Students’ Association.  We hope that 3Ls members and friends will help us to mark this anniversary while we reflect on three decades of friendship and informal learning.

Guided tours of the Trades Hall will be available ahead of the main event at 2.00pm and members can enjoy food and fizz in the surroundings of the Banqueting hall in this famous Glasgow building.

There has been an excellent response from 3Ls members who were interested in taking part in this Oral History Project.  All places on the project have now been filled and Clare McDade has expressed her thanks to those who have contacted her to date.

Watch this space for news of future volunteering opportunities.


Interesting Antiques

 

A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon was had by those who braved Storm Diana to attend the Interesting Antiques event at the Trades Hall last month.  Gordon Foster of the Scottish Antique and Arts Centre at Doune regaled us with tales of his career as an antiques expert.  He found lots of items of interest to discuss amongst objects brought by participants, many of whom shared stories about the origins of the treasures on display.


November Lunchtime Talk

Dawn Sinclair, Senior Archivist at HarperCollins publishers delighted us with a Lunchtime Talk on 19 November when she explored the history of this famous company who celebrated their 200th Anniversary in 2018.

We heard tales of the founding Collins family, their ethos of support for employees and tales of relationships built over many decades with famous authors.  We also had the chance to see a number of archive items including some first edition novels and a Christmas card sent to employees serving at the front during World War 1.
