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.

You can sign up for the monthly Museum Newsletter, which is distributed by email, and includes details of Events, Talks, Exhibitions, Children’s activities and other snippets of News.
