The Guildford Institute’s new Window on the World talks will be exploring a wide range of topics on various weekday afternoons, offering greater flexibility for attendees.

The first will be a Hallowe’en special on the ghosts of Hampton Court Palace on Friday, October 23, at 3.30pm.

A talk on the ghosts of Hampton Court Palace takes place at the Guildford Institute on Friday, October 23.

Sarah Slater presents a spooky journey through the palace. Feel what it’s like to wander the galleries late at night, discover its haunting history and hear about the spine-tingling stories and sightings of ghosts over the years. Tickets are £5 with institute members receiving priority booking. Book tickets online now.

The institute hopes to have a limited audience at its building in Ward Street to enjoy this face-to-face talk, alongside an online audience for those unable to attend in person.

The library will be reopening on Tuesday, October 6, and the institute says: “This much-loved space has been hugely missed over the past six months and we can’t wait to welcome you back. A big thank you to our dedicated Library volunteers who have made its reopening possible”.

The library is reopening at the Guildford Institute.

Initially, the library will be open Tuesdays to Fridays, 10am to 2pm. There will be a number of measures in place to ensure your safety. Newspapers will not be available for the time being.

The library has a selection of new titles included in the Guildford Book Festival (October 4 to 11). If you would like to reserve a book phone 01483 562142 during its opening hours.

Nick and Ian are offering a Friday meal-deal at the V Café.

The institute’s online courses using Zoom are now in full-swing and the institute has been receiving very positive feedback on them.

Online courses at the Guildford Institute are proving popular.

Check out the online programme from archaeology to space exploration, languages and seasonal crafts, and classes to keep you busy.

The latest exhibition is a collection of beautiful landscape paintings by Guildford-based artist Luz Nunez.

The current art exhibition at the Guildford Institute is work by artist Luz Nunez.

While Luz loves to paint landscapes from her memories of Spain and the Caribbean, she has also found inspiration from the UK’s countryside. Some of her work on display includes familiar spots from the local area such as Guildford Cathedral and the River Wey. Her work will be on display until Friday, October 9.
