Adult Events Programme
This summer we’re expanding our Adult Events Programme with tours, talks and workshops, from meadow walks along the river to creative workshops. The Museum’s stunning riverside location and dramatically impressive building create a stimulating environment, with its light and airy galleries providing the perfect surroundings in which to escape from the outside world, relax and reboot.
