Talk on Pub Signs
Oct 6 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

A light-hearted look at the history of inn signs. Find out about the different types of inn sign, historical influences, different types of drinking establishment and the origins of some of the names…and some controversial signs!

After the talk there will be refreshments in the Checker – including of course beer from our own Loose Cannon Brewery – and a chance to enjoy the beautiful buildings..

Entry is free but donations towards the upkeep of the Abbey Buildings would be warmly welcomed.

There is no parking at the Abbey Buildings, although drop-off and pick-up is possible. There is limited space for wheelchairs in the theatre: please contact the Curator on 01235 525339 or 07389 063158 if you would like a space to be reserved for you, or have other questions about accessibility. Sadly, access to the refreshment area and the Long Gallery is only possible by stairs.

Event supported by The Loose Cannon Brewery.
