Opening Hours

The GLUCKSMAN Little Interview

Each week we ask the same set of questions to a different member of our community. Throughout 2015, we interviewed diverse members of the Glucksman community - artists, academics, staff members, guests, audiences and workshop participants. The responses were funny, inspiring, revealing and always a great read. The archive of 2015's interviews can be found here. Thanks to all who took part!

Ahead of the Butter Exchange Band performance on Saturday, this week our Little Interview series features Sheila Beecher, participant in our Art Club Senior course.
