The Huguenots of Spitalfields have organised an art event which promises to be unique.

It’s a look at some of the famous Huguenots whose portraits now hang in the National Portrait Gallery.  “From Calvin to Churchill, Garrick to Garland, the legacy of the Huguenots spans art, religion and politics,” says the charity.

Writer Theo Bosanquet will be interviewing Dr Tessa Murdoch of the Victoria and Albert Museum about the portraits.

Zoom offers unusual creativity for lectures, and that potential is set to be maximised by these lively experts.
