Illustrated Talk on J. K. Broad

September 8, 2023 @ 2:30 pm

| Free

As part of Liskeard Unlocked Liskeard Old Cornwall will be holding an illustrated talk on the life and works of John Kerkin Broad (1869-1947), a member of the British Watercolour Society and a recorder of his memories of a lifetime in Liskeard.

The President of Liskeard Old Cornwall Society and an Honoured Burgess of Liskeard, Brian Oldham, will deliver a Power Point illustrated talk covering three aspects of the life of a watercolourist who was born and lived the whole of his life in Liskeard. J.K. Broad lived and worked in the family grocery store, firstly as a delivery boy for his father and later assisting his brother to run the store.

His passion was painting, mostly landscapes around the Cornish coast and countryside. The Cornish Times printed a column by Broad called ‘While I Remember’, which were his amusing observations of the characters he met in the bustling market town of Liskeard.
