    Really wish I could come to this but I am working. I lived in St Ives Cornwall and know so much about Hepworth. I hope to get to the Paul Nash exhibition and maybe Kitaj at the Jewish Museum.

      I thought Paul Nash was coming to Pallant House next? Might be wrong!

    The gallery and exhibition were brilliant - loved the Kitaj and the Hepworth equally. Unfortunately didn't manage to meet up with anyone! I was late, so there was no way to make contact once I was there. Anyway, much enjoyed though!

    Hi - I'm planning to go along to Pallant House on Friday - is there a chance of a lift to and from Brighton by some kind fellow attendee? Also, is anyone planning to go along to the St John Passion concert as well that evening? And ... do we buy tickets there on the day or do we need to buy them in advance online? So many questions!

      Hi Julie, glad you can make it. Looks like there will only be 3 of us interested in the Pallant House exhibition. There will be 4 of us (inc you) going to St John Passion. We have 3 tickets already for St John Passion, ticket nos Y3-Y5 (£20 each for the eve) hope you can get a ticket nearby. One problem with lifts is that only you and I would be doing both events. Others are coming and going. So it will probably be best to get a train unless anybody comes on board. Although another idea is to take some people up and others back if they are willing, however if they have returns purchased they may prefer not to go for the extra cost. I'll enquire. Best Wishes Clive

      OK Clive, thanks for the information. There's a possibility that I might be bringing a guest to the gallery exhibition in which case I can get a lift with her. I will most likely not stay for the evening event in that case. Either way, I will assume that I will make my own way to Chichester and back (by train or with my friend). Thanks, see you there! Best, Julia

    Superb exhibition! I saw it at the Jewish Museum in Camden (it's showing there and at Chichester) which provided a very powerful experience. I've no idea how this will translate re. Chichester without the museum and history, but regardless, do see it in either venue if you can. It's worthwhile!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
