Tours and Talks

Sunday Handling Sessions

Join one of our volunteers for a handling session with items from the collection and learn a little about the wide variety of objects it contains.

Tours and Talks for Groups

Would your group like a personal tour of the Hawley Gallery or a talk about the Hawley Collection at your own venue?

For a small fee one of our volunteers can provide a tour or come to your venue to talk to your group.  We can also provide tailored tours and workshops on a wide range of topics.

Talks are now also available via Zoom or whatever platform you have available. Possible topics include: Ken Hawley and the Hawley Collection, Cutlery for Afternoon Tea, Collection Photographs and Walker & Hall.

Please contact us for more information.

Tours for visually-impaired visitors

An audio-guide to the Hawley Gallery for visually-impaired visitors is now available, with the opportunity of handling a selection of tools during the tour. If you are interested in using this guide, please contact us for further details.

You can also download a copy of the guide from the Your Visit page.
