A Day with Stanley Spencer
Tuesday 05 June 2018

Take a day out to appreciate the work of one of the greatest British painters of the twentieth century. Stanley Spencer is perhaps best known for his paintings depicting Biblical scenes occurring as if in Cookham, the small village beside the river Thames where he was born and spent much of his life. On this trip you will have the opportunity to take a guided walk around Cookham to see the locations of some of his best-known paintings and also see them in the flesh in the Stanley Spencer Gallery in the village. On route to Cookham we will be visiting the Sandham Memorial Chapel, which houses one of Stanley Spencer’s most prestigious commissions – sixteen enormous paintings derived from Spencer’s experiences as a medical orderly in World War 1. There will be ample time to enjoy the Chapel garden and take coffee.
