The Russell-Cotes is full of paintings, sculptures, objects and treasures – each one has a story to tell.
Our Spotlight Talks are short, informal talks about a particular artwork or theme that lasts between 15 and 30 minutes, and are a fascinating way to delve deeper into the museum collection.
Spotlight Talks are very informal. They take place in the historic house, near to the relevant object, and there is no additional charge to attend.
