Kirker Holidays is once again sponsoring the annual Venice in Peril Spring Lecture.


This year’s event, which is being held in aid of the Canova Monument Appeal, takes place at London’s Royal Geographical Society on Tuesday, April 16 and starts at 7.00 pm.

Director of the Royal Collection, Jonathan Marsden CVO FSA, will deliver the 2013 lecture, entitled ‘The Phidias of modern times’ : Antonio Canova and George IV, Regent and King’.

Kirker’s director of sales & marketing, Ted Wake said:

“Kirker Holidays is delighted to sponsor the 2013 Venice in Peril Spring Lecture for another year. The event is eternally popular with our discerning clientele, who agree that life is simply too short not to visit Venice whenever an opportunity arises. Kirker has been offering tailor-made short breaks to this unique city since 1986 and we remain committed to preserving its delights for future generations to enjoy.”

Tickets are still available for the Venice in Peril Spring Lecture and cost £20 per person. To reserve tickets, please contact Venice in Peril on 020 7736 6891 or visit
