Art Funded Treasures at the Castle Museum

Four senior museum staff will present the favourite Art Funded treasures in their care during illustrated lectures in the Town Close Auditorium. They are Dr John Davies, Keeper of Archaeology and Chief Curator of Collections, Dr Andrew Moore, Keeper of Art, Dr Tim Pestell, Curator of Archaeology and Dr Francesca Vanke, Curator of Decorative Arts. We are very grateful to them for making themselves available for this evening event.

Then will follow the launch of the Art Fund Trail – an illustrated guide to the treasures in an easy-to-follow route through the Castle Museum and Art Gallery, which will be available to the public free of charge through the Summer months. You will be able to follow the trail after the lecture. At this point the curators and keepers will be available for consultation or discussion.

This is a joint venture with Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery and we shall take the opportunity to promote the Art Fund to the public. Bring your friends.
