New online talks 2021

Winter Season Talks

Nantwich Digital Museum continues to develop, even as the Covid-19 pandemic has once again obliged the museum to close its doors to the public and the temporary exhibition programme has had to be deferred. Following the success of online talks, which drew substantial audiences, even some from abroad, a winter season of talks has been devised. They provide an opportunity to learn more about the history of the area, the evolution of local maps and the story of Sir John Brunner of Brunner Mond, the chemical works in Northwich, who contributed £200 towards the construction of a Free Library, the building destined to become today’s museum.

Wednesday 17 February 2021: The History of Townsend House and Nantwich Walled Garden – by Helen Cooke.

Wednesday 24 February: The Drovers come to Nantwich – by Wyn Jones.

Wednesday 3 March: The Story of Crewe Hall – by Graham Dodd.

Wednesday 10 March; The River Weaver and its Water – the Good, the Bad and the Ugly – by Helen Cooke.

Wednesday 17 March: Mapping Nantwich from Speed to the Ordnance Survey – by Keith Lawrence.

Wednesday 24 March: Sir John Brunner: his Life, Legacy and Connection with Nantwich – by Diana Leitch.

Participants can join the talks from 1.50 pm for a prompt start at 2.00 pm. Full instructions for joining will be provided when booking.

The cost is £5.00 per talk with all proceeds supporting the work of the Museum.
