Objects in Focus Talks
Looking to do something different over lunch?

Chippenham Museum's current programme of free Object in Focus talks are perfect for local culture-loving workers, residents and students to pop in and learn something new whilst at lunch. The half-hour weekly talks start at 1pm and will be running alongside the museum’s current temporary exhibition ‘What’s in Store: Behind the Scenes at Chippenham Museum’ open until Tuesday 23 April.

The short introductory talks will explore the stories behind some of the museum’s objects on display and discuss how they help our understanding of the past.

Thursday 21st March – Indexing the Spinke’s Directories
