To celebrate the opening of our new exhibition on Thomas Paine we will be hosting a free lecture on 5th June, 7pm by the curator of the exhibition Robert E Dunay.

The Guildhall will open its doors at 6.15 to allow visitors to visit the Thomas Paine exhibition and purchase wine and soft drinks prior to the lecture. All proceeds go directly to supporting the Museum and Archives.

The lecture is free but places are restricted so please register with our Visitor Information Centre either at the Guildhall building, on 01304 617197 or at
