The Wigmore Lectures Programme

Enjoy a range of talks at Wigmore Community Hub. The winning programme has also now been extended to at least three other libraries across Medway.

Due to coronavirus (COVID-19) we’ve been missing our Wigmore Lecture season.

We’ve organised an online treat including Medway’s own research expert, Jeremy Clarke presenting: ’Percy Fitzgerald: friend or fan? Discovering Dickens through Percy’s collection’.

Percy Fitzgerald: friend or fan? A virtual lecture with Dr Jeremy Clarke

Date: 28 April

Discovering Dickens through Percy's collection. The lecture will be presented by Dr Jeremy Clarke, Guildhall Museum Education Officer and Dickens expert. 

Fitzgerald met Dickens in 1856 and it changed his life. The talk introduces a collection of rare material he assembled during the later years of the 19th century, which he donated to the new Rochester museum in 1912.
