Throughout the year, various lectures and talks take place in Pietermaritzburg’s Tatham Art Gallery’s well equipped Lecture Theatre. A regular feature has been Dr Alleyn Diesel’s illustrated talks on the first Saturday of every month, which are continuing in 2017. The funds generated through these talks are used to buy handmade craft for the Gallery Shop.

Dr Diesel has selected the following interesting topics for the first three talks:

February 4: Who is the Goddess? Searching for the female face of divinity
March 4: Sacred Cities of the World
April 1: Pilgrimages

Each talk will take place at 11h00 in the Lecture Theatre in the Tatham Art Gallery and will last approximately one hour. Cost is R30 per person per talk, and booking is essential through Reena at 033 392 2823/ or call or the Gallery Shop at 033 392 2828.

The Gallery Shop and Coffee Shop will be open from 10h00. The Tatham Art Gallery is situated opposite the Pietermaritzburg City Hall. Safe parking will be available in the Legislature grounds.
