Friends' Events 

We hold events which are usually in the form of illustrated talks monthly on Wednesday mornings starting at 10.30 and lasting for an hour. 

These are open to everybody and cost £4 for members and £6 for visitors. 

They take place in the Lecture Theatre at Southampton City Art Gallery.
