Next Lecture - Tuesday 5th January 2021      Carole Petipher  Vaux le Vicomte "Fit for a King", The Inspiration behind Versailles Palace: A Tale of Misplaced Ambition, Jealousy and Betrayal

French 17th century chateau design owes much to one man: the ambitious visionary Nicholas Fouquet who is still somewhat of an enigma today. He seemed invincible but made one grave error of judgement,  which was to lead to his downfall. He employed the country’s best talent of the day to commission a spectacular chateau for himself. In doing so,  he was completely outshining the Sun King; Vaux le Vicomte presented a radical new look for the century, whilst Versailles was nothing more than a humble hunting lodge at the time. The story that ensues is legendary. This lecture explores innovative garden design and architecture together with lavish interiors to tell the shocking story.

Carole is an experienced guide and lecturer on combined history and art tours in France with 20 years’ experience. Having lived and worked on a number of bespoke river vessels and converted barges there, she has used them as a platform from which to research her lectures. She uses art in all its guises to explore the characters who shaped France and likes to delve behind the scenes to discover hidden truths. She also acts as a guide for a privately owned ancestral home in her native Chilterns.

ASCOT BRASS | THE FUTURE

Ascot Brass a 30 piece concert Brass Band, who are now in their 14th successful year, we are a registered charity and perform many concerts for good causes. However, the band members have agreed it is time we should be putting on our own concert, with selected soloists, and excellent choirs, so we are exploring the best method of seeking a single sponsor or a number of sponsors. Naturally, maximum exposure would be in evidence at each concert.

Any individuals, or companies that enjoy the sound of a good brass band, and can help us in our objective, please email malcolm@surefootservices.co.uk <mailto:malcolm@surefootservices.co.uk

To discuss its potential.
