Curator in Residence 2019, a free to attend programme of short talks delivered by our expert curators….

Starting on Saturday 23 March 2019, and then every third Saturday of the month*, The Fan Museum’s curators will be in residence and offering free-to-attend talks relating to objects displayed on both the Ground and Upper floor galleries. Designed for adult audiences, the talks each last around 15 minutes and cover a range of topics including the history of fan painting, fans as symbols of status and wealth, an introduction to the Museum’s new upper floor displays and a chance to learn more about the Grade II* Listed Georgian buildings which house the Museum.

The talks commence at 12.00hrs and then every 45 minutes until 16.00hrs. A schedule will be available to view in the Events section of our website prior to each event.

* The dates of our monthly Curator in Residence event are liable to change. Please check the Events section prior to any planned visit to avoid disappointment.
