Val Floy, Chief Operating Officer at Worcester Cathedral, is responsible for the Cathedral's team of 50 staff, over 300 volunteers and the building itself. Val will talk about the lessons they've learnt during the pandemic, and new ways of working for the future to ensure they continue to thrive.

James Taylor - Brilliant British Humour in the Forgotten Art of the Picture Postcard: 1840-1950 - 2:00 pm

Artist-drawn postcards were the most popular art form from the Edwardian era to the outbreak of World War II. Dr James Taylor, a former auctioneer and curator of paintings at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, has been collecting them for more than 40 years. He will discuss the masters of the medium such as Mabel Lucie Attwell, Donald McGill and Fred Spurgin, and the reasons why the postcards' popularity waned with the British public.
