Pollyanna’s most famous talk tells the story of a remarkable journey into China to paint Giant Pandas.

Accompanied by her daughter and business partner Anna-Louise, she travelled into one of the remotest areas of the Tibetan Borderlands in her quest to paint one of the most iconic and elusive of all animals. The two became the first western women ever to travel into an isolated mountain reserve, where they were lucky enough to be able to work in a small hospital for sick pandas, bringing them into remarkably close contact with one of the rarest animals on earth. This enchanting talk tells the story of their journey – from the hardships and frustrations to the lasting friendships made in this enigmatic and beautiful country, and shows the spectacular award-winning paintings which resulted from the trip.

Doors open 2.15pm. Tickets £5.00, including Tea and Cake.  Contact Chris Burrows 0115 8494309  or 07702 528394 to book, or for further information.
