The Friends of Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery is an association founded to help with the preservation of Peterborough’s heritage. They help protect our heritage and support it through a programme of a wide variety of events, ranging from social evenings, lectures, and outings to other museums and sites. They have contributed to the enhancement and maintenance of different collections at the Museum.
Among other activities, the Lunch Time Lectures are held on third Thursday of each month. They are proceeded by a buffet lunch with tea, coffee or soft drinks, which are included in the price. These lectures are a great opportunity to meet like minded people, to learn with enthusiastic and informative speakers, and to help raise funds to support the museum and art gallery.
The lectures at the museum commence with the buffet lunch at 12.15 pm, lectures run from 1.00 to 2.00 pm, unless specified otherwise.
Please note: from time to time lectures are in the John Clare Theatre at Central Library – all changes of venue will be notified.
