Do you only have five minutes to discover something new? Join us for a monthly staff pick introduction.
Pop in for a five minute talk to hear our staff’s personal responses to an object on display in our Galleries, and uncover a few little known stories or facts at the same time.
We all have our favourite artworks or objects, maybe you will discover yours too. Join a member of staff and move away from the whats, whys and wherefores of an object. Instead get a personal viewpoint on a favourite piece and discover new connections, anecdotes and highlights through a short talk.
Please check times with event organiser for any last minute changes.
This 5 minute talk will be at 12:30pm and repeated at 1:30pm
