Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery lunchtime talk.

Listen as Dr Harry Bennett from Plymouth University questions why the events of late March and late April 1941 had such a devastating impact on memories and society in Plymouth.

75 years on, why do the shadows of the Blitz continue to hang over the city? Do we need new ways of looking and thinking about it?


£2 per person. Advance booking and payment are essential through the City Museum and Art Gallery's Welcome Desk. Payment can be made by cash, cheque, debit or credit card. Please make cheques payable to 'Plymouth City Council'. Please note the museum will not be able to refund any monies unless the talk is cancelled.

Any unreserved tickets will be available on the day although the museum cannot guarantee that any will remain! All talks start at 1.10pm and last for up to 45 minutes including questions and answers.

For the enjoyment of all attendees, latecomers will not be admitted if the gallery is full or very busy. If you wish to get a particular seat please turn up in plenty of time.
