The group is host­ing a talk at the Her­itage Cen­tre on Roe Street with Tom Hughes to­day (Wed­nes­day, Jan­uary 13) at 7.30pm.

Fu­ture events on the Friends’ cal­en­dar in­clude a talk on Fe­bru­ary 10 by a mu­seum vol­un­teer Ian Richard­son, who will be talk­ing about all the work that goes on be­hind the scenes at the mu­seum.

En­trance costs £4 or £3 for Friends mem­bers.
