Deputy manager Rebecca Rees said: “Our talks have always been incredibly popular and get booked up quickly. Covid-19 has forced us to drastically reduce the capacity of our Education Room where the talks are held.

"Filming some of the talks to release online means that hopefully some of our usual audience who are unable to get to the museum will still be able to continue enjoying the series.”

The talks cover a variety of local history subjects from ‘The Plague in 17th Century King’sLynn, to ‘The Royals at Sandringham’ and the fascinating ‘Sir Robert Walpole and HoughtonHall’.

Speakers will also beexploring the musical Le Strange family, medieval fenlands and the life of local architect SirGuy Dawber!
