History from Home Digital Talks:
We are very excited to launch our very first season of digital talks! These free, 20 min talks explore the history of the town and surrounding area in a new and exciting way. Each talk is followed by a live Q+A session where you can ask the speaker your questions. Click here to see what talks we are running and details of how to sign up.   

History from Home group talks:
We are now offering a range of fascinating Virtual Talks for groups.  These 45 minute talks (plus time for Q&A) are ideal for small and large groups and cover a range of local historical topics. The talks will be hosted by the museum via Zoom Video Conferencing in order to maintain social distancing. Click here to find out more about the topics we can offer and how to book.
