Chester’s Grosvenor Museum will be once again staging a year-long series of ‘Object of the Month’ talks starting from 12 January that will throw light on Cheshire’s fascinating history. The free talks are aimed at attracting a lunch-time audience between 1-1.30pm in the museum’s historic lecture theatre located within the museum at 27 Grosvenor Street, Chester. The talks will give a unique insight into the unfolding work of West Cheshire Museum’s curators and Archaeology Officer – much of whose work in preserving the history of West Cheshire and the collections of its four museums takes place ‘behind the scenes’. Booking is not required. For further information go to westcheshiremuseums.co.uk
