Lunchtime Talk - A Sporting Season

This year we feature new seasonal talks series inspired by our exhibitions programme.

The turn of the twentieth century saw an unprecedented rise in the popularity of fishing as a sport. This talk examines this period through some of the antique rods and reels in our collections, with a chance to get up close and personal with the “reel” thing.

Talk by Jenny Brown, Lead Curator
