Talks Programme

''The Museum Service also offers an interesting and varied talks programme on a wide range of subjects - from mystery objects to the day to day work of a curator. We are happy to travel anywhere within Staffordshire, but we do charge for travel costs to venues outside the county boundary.

Please note that talks are popular, so bookings need to be made a minimum of six months in advance. Please contact us for further details.

For more information or to book a talk, please contact Chris Copp, Museums Officer;
