Dr James Grant

 

The Arts Society Speyside is delighted to invite you to a Special Interest Day at The Horizon Centre, The Enterprise Park, Forres IV36 2AB on Wednesday 6th November 2019 presented by James Grant.  James is a retired doctor and is passionate about all aspects of medicine, its history and its relationship to art and artists.  Despite the grim sounding lecture subject, James’s lectures are full of humour and fascinating, entertaining facts.
