Alphonse Mucha: In Quest of Beauty – Ends 27th September

The iconic Czech artist Alphonse Mucha, otherwise known the master of Art Nouveau, was celebrated for his distinctive style, use of gentle colours and floral decorative elements. He produced many paintings, illustrations, posters, postcards and advertisements that became the Trademark of the Art Nouveau movement. The Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum are celebrating his work with several showcases including ‘Women – Icons and Muses’, ‘Le Style Mucha – A Visual Language’ and ‘Beauty – The Power of Inspiration’ which are must sees for the art fanatic.

Red Squirrel Walks – Ends 2nd October

Only 200 red squirrels still survive on Brownsea Island, the picturesque island situated in Poole Harbour, a mere ferry ride from our Bournemouth B&B. Dorset Wildlife Trust carries out conservation work to ensure they live in ideal conditions to thrive, and it is essential we appreciate them while we can. The National Trust holds guided walks where children are encouraged to explore nature and count the red squirrels. At this time of year the squirrels are more likely to venture on the ground or are often seen playing in low branches
