The Art of the Poster
Andrew Davies
Wednesday 10 May 2017

Your Country Needs You, Careless Talk Costs Lives, Alexander Korda Presents, Pears Bubbles Soap, the Guinness Toucan, the Bisto Kids and many more. The British poster has informed, entertained and instructed us ever since Toulouse-Lautrec and the arrival of the colour poster showed what was possible.

 Andrew Davies will give us his usual lively commentary. We will savour this colourful, vibrant and often overlooked art form which reveals just how we lived, worked and played over the last 100 years.
