Dylan Thomas, 3 November - To commemorate the centenary of his birth Colin Pinney recounts the story of Dylan Thomas.

The programme culminates with an account of his visits to America and his final performance in New York of Under Milkwood.
Women of the RAJ, 6 November- When the Colonial Administrators arrived to take over from the East India Company they were often accompanied by their wives: wives who spoke only English, who mixed only with the other wives, and who couldn't even communicate with their domestic staff. Wives who made great demands on their husbands. Presented by Brian Freeland.
Lest We Forget - 7 November - A moving talk covering the events of WW1 interwoven with the works of Vera Brittain, Rupert Brooks, Wilfred Owen and others.
My Boy Jack - 11 November - Most families in Britain were touched by the WW1 but few could have felt it more keenly than Rudyard Kipling. Join John Walker as he shares the story that tortmented Kipling for the rest of his life. Followed by a two course lunch.

Dion Salvador Lloyd & Eve Shepherd Joint Exhibition
Saffron Gallery, Battle
8 -20 November 2014
Long-awaited exhibition bringing together Eve Shepherd's sculptures and Dion Salvador Lloyd's paintings.
Eve Shepherd MRBS SPS -Eve was described as 'unique in the world of modern sculptors' by Professor Anthony Stone, former President of the Society of Portrait Sculptors. She has been compared with the great Rodin, & is predicted to become "one of the greatest artists of our time."
Dion Salvador Lloyd-Dion is a veteran of annual exhibitions such as the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, Royal West of England Academy & the Discerning Eye. He is driven by intuition - each painting is an unplanned journey, an exploration of the horizon & the interplay between earth & sky, all energized & charged by their vibrancy & animation.
