Tuesday 30th November Lunchtime Lecture: Whatever Happened to Handwriting?

Dr Alma Swan has an abiding love of calligraphy and illumination and practises them where possible. She is Secretary of the Society of Scribes & Illuminators and calligrapher to Exeter City Council. The lecture will concern the role writing by hand has played in the development of our culture, how it is still important in official circles and growing in popularity, despite the age of the computer.

Lectures usually start at 11.30am-doors open at 10.45am. This lecture may be very popular as Dr Swan is a local resident and well-known in Topsham, so we will start earlier if all seats are taken. Coffee and biscuits are available before and a light lunch afterwards. Free Entry
