Radstock Museum runs two series of TALKS.

Bygone Days talks celebrate both local and national history.

Science in Radstock talks are ‘popular science’ talks; an eclectic mixture of current science disciplines and past, present and future technologies.

There are several ways to keep in touch with the Museum talks programmes.
