Our supporters, the Friends of Weymouth Museum, organise an autumn and spring programme of interesting talks by local historians.
The talks are held at St Nicholas Church, Buxton Road, DT4 9PJ. Doors open at 2pm when tea and biscuits are available, and the talk begins at 2.30pm. There is a small cost of £2 per person.
The spring programme begins on Monday 8 February, with the talk titles yet to be confirmed.
As examples of the subjects covered by our talks, take a look at the autumn 2015 programme below.
