ART historian Kay Blackburn will give a talk called Botticelli Exposed at at Peter’s Church Hall in Seaford on April 5.
The event is the first in a series of East Blatchington lectures and will support the Raise the Roof campaign.
It begins at 2.30pm in Belgrave Road and all money will go towards the cost of the church roof.
Lewes District council leader Carolyn Lambert will attend as the guest of honour.
Tickets are available from Living Words or at the door and cost £5, which includes tea and homemade cake.
Last year the lectures raised £1,000.
