Parkinson's Talk in Chichester

On July 19th, sixty members of the Chichester Branch of Parkinson's UK braved the heat of one of the year's hottest days, to offer a generous welcome and, following the talk, an almost embarrassingly effusive vote of thanks for my hour-long illustrated lecture.

The last in a series of thirteen talks which began in February, The Life & Work has been given at branches right across the country and was not only one of the best in numbers, but the members attending radiated an almost tangible enthusiasm. In the moving words of the events secretary this showed that there 'was life after Parkinson's', referring to the range of work produced after my father's own diagnosis with the disease.

With the nearby Otter Gallery and magnificent Pallant House Gallery both due to mount exhibitions in the spring of 2011, it will not be a long journey for members of the Parkinson's branch to visit these Chichester galleries.
