Our Dazzle Event at St Barbe’s Museum

A Dazzle Do

Our society celebrated The Golden Jubilee with a party in the newly re-furbished St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery in Lymington on Monday 18th June 2018.

Members were invited to a private view of the current exhibition –

‘Dazzle – Disguise and Disruption in War and Art’

The lecture on June 11th on this theme was given to our society by Dr James Taylor, who curated the exhibition, and this evening provided a chance for members to see this unique event put on by the Gallery to commemorate the end of the first World War.

The Gallery was tastefully decorated in a variety of ‘Dazzle’ tapestries made by local people and music was provided by the FB Pocket Orchestra who played tunes appropriate to the era.

Members enjoyed a glass of wine during the evening and Chairman Sue Balfour presented a cheque for £500 to Don MacKenzie who gratefully accepted the donation on behalf of the Trustees of St Barbe,
