The 2023-2024 Lecture Programme

We are pleased to report the return of our popular Winter Lecture Programme, which resumes in October 2023. Please note that for the 2023 -24 season we will again be holding our monthly lectures at the Hallfold United Reform Church schoolroom on Hall Street, since it has a far greater capacity than the museum, and it also allows us to provide a much better socially distanced seating plan. Full details of the current programme can be found on our lecture page
