Italian influence

THE work and influence of 16th century Italian architect Andrea Palladio is the presentation subject at the next meeting of Morpeth and District Civic Society on Wednesday.

One of the members, John Lewis, will give an illustrated talk that includes examples of the Palladian villas built in the environs of Vicenza and some churches in Venice. It will be followed by questions and tea or coffee.

The meeting will be held in Morpeth Methodist Church, Howard Road, from 7.30pm. Non-members are welcome to attend.
