People affected by dementia or social isolation (and their companions) are welcome to join The Power Of The Object Group for themed sessions with object handling, gallery visits and cups of tea! This is a great opportunity to get close to the museum collections and to socialise.

Sessions are FREE and usually take place once a month on a Friday afternoon from 2pm – 4pm in the Learning Lab at The Beaney.
