An illustrated talk by David Boyd Haycock on Saturday 23rd September 7.30pm at St Mary’s Church, Slindon BN18 0RB

The international art market is valued at billions of dollars each year. But what makes some paintings worth a fortune, and others worthless?  How is the value of a work of art determined, and what is the part played by fakes, copies and forgeries? Looking at artworks by some of the most famous Western artists, this talk ranges from the early Renaissance to the 21st century – and raises the puzzling questions, ‘what is art? and ‘what is it really worth?’

David Boyd Haycock is a well-known freelance writer, lecturer and curator specialising in British art and culture of the early 20th century.

Their Finest Cert 12A

The year is 1940, London. With the nation bowed down by war, the British ministry turns to propaganda films to boost morale at home. Realizing their films could use “a woman’s touch,” the ministry hires Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) as a scriptwriter in charge of writing the female dialogue. Although her artist husband looks down on her job, Catrin’s natural flair quickly gets her noticed by cynical, witty lead scriptwriter Buckley (Sam Claflin). Catrin and Buckley set out to make an epic feature film based on the Dunkirk rescue starring the gloriously vain, former matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy).

“You’d need a heart of stone and a funny bone of porridge not to enjoy this sweet-natured and eminently lovable British film – a 1940s adventure, with moments of brashness and poignancy. “   [The Guardian]
