Come and hear this dynamic pair talk about what they have learned which can help you to look after your own collection. The biggest risk to heritage is the ‘roundtoit’ idea. All things deteriorate with age, but it isn’t as hard (or expensive) as you think to make sure assets appreciate instead of depreciating.
Refreshments will be available from 6 pm and the talk will commence at 6.30 pm
