Trustee Dr Paul Richards said: “Our PSA talks offer a variety of history topics to entertain and educate and we hope to welcome you on these four Sunday afternoons.”

The talks are hosted at the historic venue on the South Quay, which was built in the 1580s to store salt, corn and wine, and is now a grade 2 listed building.
