Do you know when the custom of sending Christmas cards was started? What image was used, who created it, who commissioned it and why? Art historian Dr. Mo Ille returns to Barton to answer these questions and discuss the repercussions.

The talk takes place at the Assembly Rooms, Queen Street at 7.30pm. For up to date information visit:
