Lady Young filled Penton Village Hall to capacity at each of the two talks she gave about her father - the sculptor Oscar Nemon.
The talks were given to raise funds for the Prisoners Education Trust, for which she raised £1700. Paul Maxlow-Tomlinson, Chairman of the Trust, spoke about its work before the evening lecture.
The talk, which lasted 50 minutes, contained about 80 slides, portraying the life and the works of her father. Born in Croatia, he lived most his life in England, dying in 1985. He sculpted Winston Churchill, Queen Elizabeth, and her late mother, President Eisenhower, Sigmund Freud, Harold Macmillan and Margaret Thatcher.
Husband George operated the digital projector for the evening.
"Aurelia gave a superb talk; I could never fill the village hall twice in a day with people wanting to listen to me!"
