“Silver Shoals - The Fish that Made Britain”
A talk by Thornham’s own Charles Rangeley-Wilson. Charles, a writer, photographer, broadcaster and conservationist, is interested in rivers, the sea and all things fishy. His talk, based on his new book of the same title, will trace the history of Britain through the “natural and unnatural histories of fish.”

“Contemporary Art – The Emperor’s New Clothes?”
Throughout a career as a commercial real estate investment advisor, Christopher was a collector of mainly Modern British art. He is now an art consultant, helping others to navigate their way through the sometimes murky water of the art market. His talk will attempt to address the comment he frequently hears in relation to contemporary art – “But my five year old child could have done better than that!” In Christopher’s own words, “my objective is to bring art to life,” and we look forward to hearing him do this.
