London Luminaries online talks

This year Gunnersbury has become one of the 14 historic houses and museums which put on a lively programme of online talks each year. The theme is Food and Drink and the first talks, from Hogarth’s House and Ham House, take place this week at 7pm on 5 and 6 October respectively. The Gunnersbury talk by Val Bott will be on 3 November

The group is run by volunteers and is now a registered charity. You can book a place without paying, but they welcome a donation of £5 per talk. The programme is devised as “First Course” and “Second Course”, each with 7 talks, and you can pay £25 “per course” or £45 for the “full meal”. All proceeds are split between the partner historic properties who are providing the talks.

All the past talks are available on YouTube via the Luminaries website. It is a terrific resource!
