Outreach Group Talks
We can visit your group to give a talk about Brooklands.
At present we have five different talks which we can present to you. They are listed below and you can book us for one or all five if you wish!
We do ask for a donation to Brooklands Museum of a minimum £40 but this may rise according to distance, number of persons etc. We like to give talks during the week evening or daytime to local groups, usually within a 20 mile radius. Any talks further afield by negotiation.
You'll find below a list of the talks we have given so far and the talks already booked for the future.
The talks are given by our Administrator, Tim Morris.
To book, or discuss, a possible talk please contact Tim Morris on 01932 857381 ext 226 or email [email protected]
