'Waterloo.. and 500 years of besting the French' by Phil Steele
Friday 12 June
Marking the waterloo bicentennial, Phil Steele will explain how Napoleon and the Duke of Wellington ended up at Waterloo. The talk will provide an account of the battle, and put the story into the context of England's long rivalry with France. Defining nations, this rivalry spread across the world, from Canada to India, and the Caribbean to the Nile.
'Sweet Memories... but don't get me started on Wagon Wheels!' by Kevin Varty
Friday 3 July
Kevin Varty takes us on a nostalgic journey through the history of chocolate and sweets, and the influence that the Temperance Movement had on their early production. Join us for a trip down memory lane, and be reminded of the sweets and treats that we all enjoyed as children.
The Friends of Kettering Art Gallery and Museum also host a range of evening talks open to both members and non-members. For more information, please visit their website or their list of talks on our website.
