The Society's constitution can be seen here.
The Norman Nicholson Society was formed in 2006 with the aim of educating the public in, and promoting the works of, Norman Nicholson.
We organise and support events and special projects which promote appreciation of Norman's work. We facilitate communication and the exchange of ideas between all who have a mutual interest in Norman's life and work. We also seek to encourage creative reflection upon locality in accordance with Norman's example.
The Society is pro-active in establishing links with schools and universities and is open to funding opportunities to enable us to expand this work. We are grateful to those funders who have supported us: the Britten-Pears Foundation for enabling us to commission a new piece of work by the composer Harry Whalley as part of our celebrations of Norman Nicholson's centenary in 2014; the Heritage Lottery Fund for a £10,000 grant in 2017 to pay for a feasibility study and architect's plans with regard to our project to buy Nicholson's old house; Arts Council England, Millom Town Council and Millom CGP Trust for supporting the biennial Norman Nicholson Festival.
The Society's media editor is Charlie Lambert. Media enquiries are welcome to firstname.lastname@example.org
