The Spectrum IFA Group again co-sponsored an excellent Arts Society de La Frontera “Live” lecture on the 15th March at the newly renovated San Roque Golf & Country Club on the Costa del Sol. We were represented by one of our local and long-serving advisers, Charles Hutchinson, who attended along with our co-sponsors Currencies Direct represented by Ignacio Ortega, Carol Schleisman and Cristina Ruiz. Also present was the society’s European Chairman Jo Ward.
The Arts Society is a leading global arts charity which opens up the world of the arts through a network of local societies and national events throughout the world.
With inspiring monthly lectures given by some of the UK’s top experts, together with days of special interest, educational visits and cultural holidays, the Arts Society is a great way to learn, have fun and make new and lasting friendships.
At this event, over 50 attendees were entertained by a talk on The Manufactured Woman which is the story of Pandora, her box and the reasons for her creation by Mary Sharp of BBC Radio 4 fame. She gave an interesting talk showing comparisons with other created female characters such as Eve in the Bible and Eliza Doolittle in Pygmalion and the later My Fair Lady.
The talk was followed by a drinks reception which included a free raffle for prizes including CH supplied book on Dutch Art and Champagne. Smart Currency Exchange also supplied wine presentation cases with glasses and Brandy.
All in all, it was a good turnout and a successful event at a wonderful venue. The Spectrum IFA Group was very proud to be involved with such a fantastic organization during its current global expansion and we hope to have the opportunity again at the November lecture.
