Our programme of subject-related talks.
The Fan Museum provides a programme of occasional lectures delivered by the Museum’s curatorial staff and occasional guest speakers. Set within the intimate surrounds of the Museum’s painted Orangery, lectures generally last between 45-60 minutes and relate either to the subject of fans, fan making and the Museum’s collections or associated topics such as dress history and material culture.
Please note, lectures are unlikely to take place in person at the Museum until 2022. Visit our Digital Programmes page to learn more about the Museum’s 2021 online talks.
