Step back in time with Museum history lesson

Local historian David Viner examines "Cirencester through Artists' Eyes", on Thursday 27th September, at the Corinium Museum, Cirencester.

He will present a fascinating view of the social history of the town over the past 200 years, looking at Cirencester through the eyes of those who have recorded changes in its life and drawing on a number of local collections of paintings, watercolours, engravings and photographs. The lecture will remind us of what we have lost, as well as what we still treasure in our town.

David Viner is Chairman of Cirencester Archaeological & Historical Society and was formerly Curator of Museums for Cotswold District Council, including the Corinium Museum - the venue for this particular lecture.

This lecture, which is one of a series of evening lectures taking place at the Corinium Museum, runs from 7pm 9pm and tickets cost 5 per person. Annual season ticket holders and Friends of the Corinium Museum receive a 10% discount.

Booking is essential. For more information, please contact Helen Arbon at the Corinium Museum on 01285 655611, or email to book a place or to find out more about other lectures or events at the Museum.
