This weekend, on Saturday 22nd March we are delighted to invite members of Hertfordshire’s LGBT community to a special evening viewing of Fizeek: the life & times of Ronald Wright.
The event runs from 7-9pm and as well as the chance to meet Ronald Wright and view the exhibition there will also be a 1950s inspired live music set from acclaimed local band The Goldbacks which you can listen to with a glass of wine (or maybe a 1950s cocktail instead- how do you take your Martini?) The event has been generously supported by Herts County Council Locality Budget Grant scheme and community donations.
