 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 next two are:


Thursday 6rd November at 7.30pm at the Town Museum: Tania King and Flick Baker will talk about the museum’s work in Armenia


Thursday 4th December 7:30pm at the Town Museam: Sylvia Hixson-Andrews, ‘Health systems, where are we headed?’



There is no need to book, just come along, but space is limited. Admission is free but donations to the Museum gratefully accepted. Refreshments will be served.
