Poole & East Dorset Art Society

Thursday sessions
Thursday 20th June:


Deans Court, Deans Court Lane, Wimborne Minster BH21 1EE

An elegant historic house set in ancient gardens, with 13 acres of gardens. There is a kitchen garden with 18th century serpentine walls, so there is much to paint. Meet at the café (also known as the "Squash Court") at 12pm.
Enter Wimborne by the Oakley Hill/Poole Road, crossing by Canford Bridge. At the roundabout, bear left and then take the first turning left along East Street. Look for Holmans on your left and drive over the pavement along Deans Court Lane.
Donation to the Priest House Museum please.

single supplement down to £130!
In order to keep the price down and retain breakfast and evening meal, we have changed hotel to Best Western in Portobello. This is not in the heart of Edinburgh but is only 10 minutes by train (twice an hour) to Waverley Station in the centre of Edinburgh. Portobello is a seaside town with a beach and the hotel has a pool and gym.
We still have spaces on the coach so if these new arrangements mean you now wish to join us, please contact Carole Gadsby (carolegadsby@gmail.com) or John Biggs (johnabiggs@ntlworld.com).
Cost at the moment is £495 per person with single supplement of £130, Should we get more people the price will be reduced accordingly.
