Alexander Armstrong takes us for a light-hearted spree through that peculiar constellation of cultural strands that we like to call Britishness, in the jocular style we know from his TV appearances. He will explore the Pitt Rivers Museum's exotic collection of treasures from around the world - expect flora, fauna, accents and even squawks! Tickets £16 (£14 for Friends), includes refreshments in the Pitt Rivers Museum following the talk.
