Social Handling Sessions
4th September 2024
2:00pm - 3:00pm
Barley Hall Coffee Shop

The sessions will involve handling objects as well as group discussions and are perfect for anyone with an interest in Archaeology, although no prior knowledge is necessary. These events are also ideal for anyone 65 years or older who enjoys meeting new people and chatting about shared interests whilst maybe even learning a new skill.

Time: 14.00 – 15.00

Cost: £3.00

Location: Barley Hall Coffee Shop (this takes place upstairs in the coffee shop, so please bear that in mind as this could present accessibility challenges).
