The conversation club is a monthly group for people who want to enjoy the museum and its collections, explore our shared heritage through objects and find new connections with others. It is particularly suitable for people living with dementia, carers and any older person who might find it difficult to navigate the galleries alone.
The Conversation Club takes place on the first Monday of the month (February to December) from 10.30am to midday.*
Each month we will take objects from the museum collections as a starting point for conversation, sharing ideas and remembering things from our own histories. In some sessions you will hear from museum volunteers on their interest areas; in others, we will use a creative activity to get the conversation flowing in a different way.
Whether or not you have been a visitor of museums in the past, Conversation Club will offer you a welcoming and social chance to talk about things old and new.
Conversation club takes place on the first Monday of the month from 10:30 – 12 – places are limited so pre-booking is advised.
Remaining tickets will be available to purchase on the door, on the morning of each event. The museum opens at 10am.
£4 per person, accompanying carers free. Click here to book on Eventbrite.
*Please note there will be no session on 2 May 2022 due to the bank holiday.
Access: Our lecture hall, where Conversation Club takes place, is on the ground floor with level access. Toilet facilities are located in our Café which is a bit of a walk from the lecture hall so it can be useful to visit on arrival. Disabled parking at the front of the museum is available to reserve in advance from Reception on 01722 332151. For further access information please visit our website.
