Tickets on sale for talks at The Station

An historic photo from Richmond Operatic Society.

Tickets are now on sale for the new series of Station Talks at The Station.

The programme includes talks from photographer Ian Short and local amateur musical group Richmond Operatic Society.

The line up is:

Monday, March 5: A Photographer’s Year. Join Ian Short as he talks about his seasonal experiences, particularly in Swaledale, The Cairngorms, Monadliath Mountains and the islands of Canna and Tanera Mor. He will show images about the nature and landscape of these stunning areas.

Monday, March 12: Swaledale. In the 1930s, Ella Pontefract and Marie Hartley travelled throughout Swaledale and grew to love the landscapes, people and traditions of the dale. Their book ‘Swaledale’ depicts an age that has disappeared. However, Swaledale, along with the other North Pennine dales, are as much cherished today as in the earlier 20th century. This presentation will show a photographer’s view of Ella and Marie’s writing.

Monday, March 19: Thinking about Photography. Photographer Ian Short gives a talk on how to improve your photography skills. He will address technical and compositional aspects of photography, using images to illustrate the various concepts which are fundamental to producing high quality images. Suitable for all abilities.

Monday, March 26: Richmond Operatic Society at 95. Join Chairman John Holliday and President Sheila Russell as they take you on a fascinating journey into the history of Richmond Operatic Society. Reminisce over photographs of past shows, listen to interesting stories and get an insight into the society now and its exciting future.

Talks start at 10.30am.

Tickets cost £5 and can be purchased from The Shop at The Station or by calling 01748 850123.
