Our lecture season runs from October to April, with lectures being held in the Anna McDowell Garden Room at Gold Hill Museum on the first Tuesday afternoon of each month. The exception is the Teulon Porter Memorial Lecture, which starts the season and is held in the evening at Shaftesbury Town Hall. Noel Teulon Porter was a notable Cambridge archaeologist and instrumental in founding The Shaftesbury & District Historical Society in 1946.
The 2016 Teulon Porter Lecturer was Professor Caroline Dakers of London’s University of the Arts and her subject on Tuesday 04 October at 7.30pm in a packed Town Hall was The Beckfords at Fonthill.
Lectures are free to members, while visitors may pay £3 at the door. To reserve a seat, non-members are advised to contact email@example.com
