Museum Talks October 2012 to February 2013

September 18, 2012

This pilot talks series has enjoyed sufficient success to be invited to continue for another year. Many thanks to everyone who has attended a talk or listened to one on the website. Talks for March-September 2013 have yet to be finalised but will include talks on Heracles/Hercules, Sophocles’ Antigone (of which there will be a performance at stage@leeds in May and related pre-performance talks) and a talk that includes an oboe recital. If you liked a talk, please remember to say so!
