The Shakers: Their Beliefs, Architecture and Artefacts
John Ericson Tuesday 12 November 2019

10.30 am to 3.00 pm to include a light lunch.  Coffee will be served from 10.00 am

In this Special Interest Day John tells the extraordinary story of the Shakers of North America, exploring their beginnings, what they believed and how they lived their lives before examining examples of their wonderful buildings and furniture.  For it is only with such an understanding of their devout faith and way of life that we can begin to appreciate their intriguing legacy.


Tickets for this event will be on sale from 9.30 am at the September 2019 meeting.
