Museum of Richmond talk by Valerie Boyes: Founding the Museum of Richmond

November 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

£6.43

A town like Richmond without a Museum – Unthinkable! The idea for a museum for Richmond first surfaced in 1843 but it took over 140 years for this to become reality. Come and hear Valerie Boyes, a member of the original Museum steering group and an ex-Chair of the Museum Board, reveal the fascinating story of how the efforts of John Cloake and a group of local residents made the Museum a reality.

Tickets £5 + fee (£4 + fee for Friends of the Museum) can be booked here.

The Museum’s website can be found here.
