Part of our Local History at Lunchtime Lectures
We are running a series of lectures via Zoom in April, May and June and we hope, by offering these events online we can ensure members of the Friends are able to view the lectures and shows without having to visit the Museum and if you are remote from Bath you will still be able to join us.
Wednesday April 28th 12.30 p.m.
Brought to you by Director Stuart Burroughs

Weaver and Company of Broad Street were instrumental in the spread of these machines and establishing a business doing much more.
