The Railway came to the Gallery ...

Some pictures from the very well attended talk at the Gallery earlier this month ... Full to capacity for a fabulous look at Kettering's railway past.

These evening talks, mostly related to art or to local history and heritage, are an excellent extension to the work of the Art Gallery and Museum - and are excellent value coming as part of your Friends Membership (or you can join us just for the night for £4) ...

Make sure you don't miss them.  The next dates are:-

June 21st - Ian Luck on Alfred East's etchings
July 19th - Phil Steele on Northamptonshire's Lost Battles
August 6th (all tickets in advance) - a summer guided visit to the London Road cemetery
September 20th - David Milner on William Carey
October 18th - Rachael Aldridge (NOST 2016 Studio Prize winner) on Stained Glass

Except for the Cemetery Tour, all are at the Gallery and all start at 7:30 (doors open from 7:00, refreshments available)
