There are two talks this month:
2.30pm Thursday 6th March at Woodmead Halls: “The Wonders of Glass” – an illustrated talk by Alan Leadbetter on the history and uses of glass. Organized by the Friends of Lyme Regis Museum.
2.30pm Tuesday 25th March at Woodmead Halls: “Monique Bellingham – Lyme’s Canadienne” – an illustrated talk by Keith Shaw of the Lyme Regis Society. Monique Bellingham, a descendent of one of the first French settlers in North America, lived in Lyme Regis for over 30 years from the mid 1820s until her death in 1856. How did this come about and what influence did she and her family have on the development of the town? Organized jointly with The Lyme Regis Society.
The current exhibition in the Museum’s Rotunda Gallery is “Charm in Memento”, presenting contemporary ceramics by Caroline Barnes. For news of forthcoming exhibitions, keep an eye on the Exhibitions page.
There are plenty of Fossil walks, Mary Anning walks and Lyme History Walks this month. There is also the first Rockpooling walk of the year, on Sunday 23rd March at 3 pm.
