All announcements are subject to Corona conditions and short-term changes

Update, September 2020:

  • The Clubroom will be restricted in numbers; distancing is required.
  • The theatre we had booked has been postponed to next year.
  • We therefore recommend that you book during the week before each Clubroom event (by phone or email to Susan) or be prepared to be turned away (sadly) if you come without reserving and we are already fully booked. Please cancel if you have reserved and find later that you cannot come.
  • We must provide to the VHS an exact room plan of each meeting with names, addresses, phone numbers and seating positions of all visitors. (Do not move the chairs.)
  • Therefore please arrive by 17:25 at the latest, as we must record any missing details and the seating positions.
  • We will disinfect the chairs and tables before the events.
  • Please wear a face mask whenever you are not seated, keep your distance (1.5m / 5') and follow the general VHS Corona rules displayed in the building.
  • Please keep your coat or jacket with you at your seat. The wardrobe must not be used.
  • Bring your own drinking water if you need it.

Please stay tuned and check here for new information.

The Chinese ceramics collection of Sir Percival David (1892–1964)

In the 1920s – a time of political changes in China – a young man travelled to Beijing to study the exquisite pieces of Chinese ceramics in the imperial collection. Captivated by the Chinese connoisseurship, he built up, over 40 years, a collection of finest porcelain and stoneware reflecting the taste of the imperial court from the Song to the Qing dynasties (10th–18th century) with their tantalizing glazes and perfect shapes. The illustrated talk by Dr Christina Kallieris shows objects from Sir Percival's collection, which is today on display in the British Museum in London.
