This summer the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge is displaying part of its collection of botanical watercolours and drawings, including an array of posies, bouquets and elaborate floral arrangements. Floral Fantasies features the work of Gerard van Spaendonck and Pierre-Joseph Redouté along with the floral motifs seen in the designs and illustrations of Walter Crane and Clarence Bicknell. Julian Clover joined Marcus Bicknell, the Great Grand Nephew of Clarence Bicknell and Hettie Ward, Assistant Keeper, Paintings, Drawings and Prints at the Fitz as she decided which pieces to show.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are listening to Cambridge 105 Radio than ever but in a competitive media landscape it’s sometimes difficult to make a noise. And advertising revenues are falling across the sector.
Our brief is to give a voice to those sometimes excluded from traditional media. And the presenters you hear on air are all volunteers themselves, who give up their time for free. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who listens to our shows, our podcasts, whose businesses we feature, helps to pay for it, our future would be much more secure.
Please help to support community radio and make our future more secure. You can support Cambridge 105 Radio by giving monthly or by making a one-off contribution through Local Giving.
