Almost everyone has played Monopoly at some time in their life. It is one of the world’s most popular and enduring board games. But, how well do you really know it?
This talk starts with the original Landlord’s Game of 1903 and its evolution into the game as we know it today. Based on the classic 1936 London version we then take a photographic journey around the locations on that Monopoly board. Expect some surprises as we explore the relationships between the various properties, look at the ones that don’t actually exist and uncover the story behind the game we all know so well – or do we?
We are a friendly local society, enjoying all aspects of the arts. Our aim is to increase our knowledge and enjoyment of the decorative and visual arts and broaden our acquaintance with people of similar interests.
Our primary activity is our monthly lecture programme on a wide range of the arts, for example: jewellery, sculpture, painting, ceramics, music; in fact any and all decorative and fine arts.
Each year we arrange several exciting visits to places of cultural significance, usually by coach from Tring Rugby Club. These include buildings of architectural or historical interest, gardens, art galleries and museums, some of which may only be available for group bookings.
Details of forthcoming activities can be found under ‘Programme of Lectures and Visits’ on the website. The cost of visits are in addition to the Membership fee of £53 p.a.
We meet at Berkhamsted Civic Centre on the second Wednesday of the month at 10:30a.m.
We are affiliated to The Arts Society, formerly The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies.
