OPERATION MINCEMEAT: In 1943, at the height of World War Two, British Intelligence agents hatched an elaborate scheme to convince the Germans that the Allied forces were planning to invade Greece rather than Sicily. The plan, code-named Operation Mincemeat, involved planting forged documents upon a dead body before setting him adrift in neutral Spanish waters, with the aim of the papers ending up in German hands. An extraordinary and true story. Starring Colin Firth and Matthew Macfadyen. Run time is 125 minutes plus there will be an interval half way through of 15 minutes.

I didn’t start painting until about 10 years ago – retirement is a wonderful thing. I have painted in acrylics, oils, on silk and with watercolour. It is just good to “try something new every decade of one’s life” according to Dame Joan Bakewell. None of the paintings on exhibition are on sale on this occasion, but I will have a go at painting most things if asked.
