We were hoping that TARS Northern Region would be meeting at the Queen’s Hall Hexham for Karen Babayan’s Swallows and Armenians exhibition on October 2nd. Unfortunately this event has had to be cancelled as work on the venue will not be finished.
However, the exhibition will be going ahead from October 23rd to November 20th and Karen is inviting TARS members to join her then for the opening.
On Saturday 23 October she will be doing an illustrated talk at 3pm, followed by a book signing and then Shakeh Major Tchilingirian will lead the Circle of Life, a circle dance in honour of the survivors of the Armenian Genocide who were helped by the Altounyan and Collingwood families at around 4.15pm. This will be followed by drinks. Do let Helen know if you are a non-TARS member wishing to attend this event.
Of course you may want to see the exhibition on another day.
If you would like to attend anytime you will need to book through the box office number tel:01434 652477 once it has been advertised in the next couple of weeks.
