In-Person Live Event: Join us at the Museum
Part of Being Human: the National Festival of the Humanities
As part of this year’s exciting Being Human National Festival of the Humanities, we're delighted to invite BBC New Generation Thinkers and literary scholars Lucy Powell and Lauren Working to tell the stories that pulse through the astounding 400-year-old paintings in our still life gallery, asking what they reveal about the history of empire, and about our own connection to global commerce.
There will be two sessions during the day: 11am–12pm and 2–3pm. Because numbers are limited in the gallery, we are asking that you book your free place in advance.
