 Thursday Talks at Blandford Museum

 Where could one find out about Catalhoyuk, a Neolithic town in Turkey where there were no streets so the inhabitants ‘got about’ by moving across the rooftops; the exploits of the Portman family; and a brief history of computers from the Egyptians to GPS?

This varied programme of short talks has been given by members of the Blandford Town Museum Trust in the last three months to enthusiastic and interested audiences who have packed the Museum once a month on Thursday evenings.

The talks are free to attend although donations are welcome and as space is limited it is advised that you come early to get a good seat. The talks always take place on the first Thursday of the month at the Blandford Museum, with tea and coffee at 7, talks starting at 7:30. Coming up are:


5th February        Mark Hinsley on Churchyard Yews – Pagan or Christian?

5th March             Update on The Church Cupola Project

2nd April                Peter Andrews, Michael Le Bas (the curators) on What’s new in the Museum?

7th May                 Dave Stewart on Hod Hill

4th June                Sara Loch, guided visit to the Old House
