Bestselling author Natalie Haynes returns to the world of Greek myth she so wittily explored in Pandora’s Jar and turns her focus on Olympus itself – not on the gods, who have had far more attention than they deserve over the millennia since these stories were first told, but on the goddesses.

A cash bar will be in operation and all ticket holders will have access to the Return of the Gods exhibition as well as the opportunity to purchase Natalie's book.
