Bite-Size Talks at Brighton Museum

If you have a spare hour free tomorrow, why not pop along to a talk at the Brighton Museum? This year the Brighton Museum are putting on weekly ‘pop-up’ talks called ‘Bite-size Museum’ in which the Royal Pavilion and Museum staff give short talks about the fascinating collections the Museum holds.

Tomorrow, the talk is on the Ammonite Capital. Amon Wilds and his son, Amon Henry Wilds are responsible for the fine architecture in the Regency and early Victorian period. Kemptown, Brunswick Town, many houses on Marine Parade and Regency Square as well as many more, are the work of Amon Wilds. His son, Amon Henry, is responsible for Oriental Place, Park Crescent, Western Terrace and Montpelier Crescent. The talk will focus on the decorative hallmark of Brighton and is led by the Keeper of Natural Sciences, John Cooper.

In the weeks following there are talks on pottery, fashion, and Salvador Dali and the stories surrounding the Mae West’s Lips Sofa! Entry to the talks is free with the Museum admission, and start at twelve pm and continue until one. To find out more head here.
