Our next lecture will be presented by local author and storyteller Kirsty Hartsiotis, who will explore the story of John Drinkwater, one of the Dymock Poets. Drinkwater had links with the Arts and Crafts Movement from his early days as a playwright in Birmingham through to his time living near Stroud during the First World War.

The event will take place at the Museum on Thursday, 12th August. Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. The 2021 lecture series has been very popular, so call the museum to reserve your places. Tickets are £10 each (£9 for Friends and Benefactors) and include a free glass of wine or soft drink. If you can’t to attend in person, the talk will be recorded and broadcast live for a reduced fee of £5. Full details are on our website.

If you’re unable to make this one, there will be further talks in September, October and November. Have a look at our website under What’s On or pop in and pick up a programme. Our sponsor for the 2021 Lecture Series is NFU Mutual (Moreton-In-Marsh).
