We are pleased to announce our 2023 lecture program

Forthcoming dates for your diary


Tuesday 12 Dec 2023 (2pm-4pm)

Joe Cornish (British photographer noted for his large format landscapes)

Fountains Abbey – “Still time to wonder…”

Joe Cornish was commissioned during lockdown to capture the beauty of Fountains Abbey, a World Heritage site. Without air or road traffic sounds, or the busy movement of visitors, he was able to record over 12 months a special kind of quiet that we’ll likely not ever experience again.

Signed copies of Joe's publication available on the day.


Lectures held at The Coliseum in Whitby, close to Whitby Bus Station.  All are welcome; there is a small admission charge of £1 for Whitby Civic Society members and £3 for non members.  (correct change appreciated)

If you have any ideas for future talks please do get in touch, we would love to hear from you.

Please note all lectures can be subject to change - check website for latest information
