Venue : Bakewell : Medway Centre New Street Bakewell Derbyshire DE45 1DY
Details : If you have never seen it before, then don’t miss the opportunity to hear Pollyanna give her most famous – and most charming – talk about her landmark expedition into the borderlands of Tibet to study and paint Giant Pandas in the wild, at this event orangised by Bakewell U3A – part of their Meg Laird lecture series.
Accompanied by her daughter and business partner Anna-Louise, Pollyanna 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.
Guests £3.00 (including light refreshment) – Non-members are especially welcome, no booking required.
