Meet the Curator

Jerwood Centre

14 March 2018
7.30 - 9.00pm

Contact us to book

If you have ever wondered what is inside the Jerwood Centre, or thought it would be nice to spend a little time with our Curator chatting about his work and looking at fascinating artefacts, now is your chance.  This winter, we will be hosting a brand new series of evening gatherings where you can meet Jeff, see precious items from our collection that are not currently on display to the public, and share your interests with us. 

It may surprise you to know that as well as an incredible collection of rare books, the Jerwood Centre also holds thousands of paintings, a working antique printing press and hundreds of irreplaceable poetic manuscripts.   These items give us a theme for each of the four sessions: books in October, pictures in November, prints in February, and manuscripts in March.

These sessions will be informal, friendly get-togethers—everyone is very welcome to drop in. No prior knowledge is needed or expected.   

Wednesday 11 October, 8 November, 14 February, 14 March

Cost: free
