A weekend in Marazion, Cornwall

The sun shone on twenty-one Churchill Fellows and guests over the weekend of 20/21 September 2014 when we were based at the delightful and unspoilt town of Marazion, near Penzance.

Our speakers were Pete Whitbread-Abrutat, Andy Reynolds and Melissa Hardie-Budden.

The afternoon saw us heading off to the Penlee House Art Gallery and Museum in Penzance where one of our Fellows, Louise Connell, is a Director. Katie Herbert, the Curator and Deputy Director, welcomed us and gave a short talk on the various paintings and other objects on display.

After a good night's rest many of us met in the sunshine for the walk across the cobbled causeway to the medieval castle of St Michaels Mount. Thanks to Alan Johns, one of our Fellows who deals with the clocks at the Mount, we were met by Lord St Levan who kindly gave a talk on the history of St Michael's Mount. It was a hugely successful and enjoyable weekend, and the sun shone throughout! See full report, including details of the Fellows' presentations (PDF, 287Kb).
