We arrived at the University of Huddersfield under sunny skies and the attractive campus looked very striking. White walls, blue skies, a burst of pink blossom and Lemm Sissay’s apposite poem Let there be Peace gave a very cheery welcome to the campus.

The visit to the Lord Mayor’s Parlour at the Civic Hall on February 22nd was a truly illuminating event. The Lord Mayor of Leeds, Councillor Al Garthwaite entertained us in the HMS Ark Royal room with tea and scones.

Leeds Art Fund members gathered in Thirsk at the Zillah Bell Gallery to enjoy the work of leading contemporary visual artists and to meet John Bell for an insight into the challenges and pleasures of creating top-quality gallery space in seemingly unlikely ancient buildings, in a rural market town.
