Talks & Events:

The King's Own Royal Regiment Museum works with the Lancaster City Museum and the Friends of Lancaster City Museum to provide a regular talks programme throughout the year.  Most talks are held on a Friday lunchtime, starting promptly at 1pm, booking is required in order to ensure your seat.  If you book and are unable to attend please do let us know, so that someone else may have your seat.  In order to support the talks the Friends of Lancaster City Museum run a raffle at each talk which you are encouraged to support as all money raised goes to the benefit of the museum.

Whilst the museum, and other organisers, plan each talk and event to take place, circumstances outside of our control may result in changes and alterations.  Please contact the museum if you are making a long journey to attend.  The website will be kept up to date.  This page last updated 16th June 2019.
