FREE Bite Size talk at Hove Museum: Journey into Adventure

Bite Size Hove Museum: Journey into Adventure with Ernest Wimble

We have started a range of FREE pop-up talks, led by museum staff and volunteers at Hove Museum. These talks will highlight recent research and new information found by staff and volunteers working behind the scenes.

Staff will showcase objects they have re-discovered from our collections stores and share the stories they have uncovered.

Come and relax in the museum, view some rarely seen objects and have a cup of tea and biscuit on us.
