To celebrate the generous donations that the Museum received in 2015, we will be hosting a conversation illuminating the back story of a significant new acquisition which expands our Elliott Brothers archive with the donor, Ron Bristow. The Elliott Brothers were an innovative British firm founded in the mid-19th century, who produced instruments for navigation, calculating, telegraphy, optics, and mechanical and electrical engineering, for clients including the British Admiralty and War Office and the East India Company.

Doors open at 18:30.

Part of the programme of events for the Museum's new entrance gallery exhibition: New Acquisitions (Opening 19 January 2016)
