We are pleased to announce another talk for your diary

Both talks are afternoon lectures, starting at 2.00pm.

Gareth Williams speaks on ‘The Country Houses of Shropshire’.

Gareth Williams is the Curator and Head of Learning at Weston Park, Shropshire.
In 2020 the first edition of his book on the Country Houses of Shropshire sold out and a new printing is awaited.

As all memberships have lapsed, the cost to attend each talk is £5.00 which will be payable on the door by all those who choose to join us.
We do hope that you will feel able to support the Grosvenor Museum Society at these events, please bring along a likeminded friend as well!
We are investigating whether we can offer a cup of tea after the talk.
At the talks we will welcome your comments about joining us on future talks and trips, and we will attempt to assess likely future demand.

As you would expect, the Grosvenor Museum follows best practice to guard against Covid with measures in place to make all its visitors feel safe.  
Mask wearing will be a matter of personal preference so please wear a mask if you prefer to do so. 
The Grosvenor Museum encourages visitors to wear masks.

Ken Pye will talk on ‘Curious and Amazing Tales of Liverpool’

A selection of curious and very funny stories from the city and its suburbs! 

Ken has informed and entertained us with several colourful lectures in recent years. He tells us this talk is guaranteed to really entertain you, with a selection of the most unusual, fascinating, yet true tales from Liverpool’s long history.

Hear about Liverpool’s own King Kong; the Nude Bathers of Bootle; The Star-Crossed lovers of Wavertree Manor; the bizarre exhibits at Reynolds Wax Museum, and much, much more.

Best of all, you will spend much of the time simply laughing at what you will hear!

We hope to offer a festive mince pie after the talk and hope you can make the event part of the run-up to your Christmas.

Admission £5.00 payable on the door. Please bring a friend.
