Dr David Cross, the art historian, will present the prestigious Bernard Bradbury Memorial Lecture. His subject for this illustrated talk is the work of artists who have discovered, presented and promoted the beauty, grandeur, and detail of our district since the mid-eighteenth century.
David Cross is a past President of The Arts Society, Cumbria, and a well-known author and lecturer on painting and sculpture in Cumbria and Lancashire. The Bernard Bradbury lecture remembers his History of Cockermouth and is organised this time by Lorton & Derwent Fells Local History Society, in association with the Cockermouth Civic Trust.
