Something for Thursdays

Thursday afternoons are never going to be the same again…

I am really excited about our new Spring 2010 Public Lecture Series, which kicks off tomorrow (April 22). It’s being held at the Treasure House Theatre, World Museum, and features a selection of subjects from our museums and galleries’ collections and exhibitions, from archaeology to contemporary slavery.

For the next four Thursdays, our curators will be talking about some of the fascinating things they have researched.

Tomorrow’s topics are Researching 10th to 16th-century Caribbean wood sculpture; Collecting contemporary slavery objects for the International Slavery Museum; and The Huxley Hoard of Viking Silver. Each talk lasts about 25 minutes.

Future highlights include Toxteth Deer Park; Liverpool's court housing and the history of World Museum Liverpool, as part of the venue's 150th anniversary celebrations.

The public lecture series is admission free and runs on Thursdays 22 April - 13 May from 2pm-3.15pm. Hope to see you there!
