Hardy’s Wessex exhibition: Meet the Curator

Join us for a talking tour around Hardy’s Wessex: The Landscapes that Inspired a Writer with exhibition curator Harriet Still.

"Hardy found his inspiration in the landscapes and people of Wessex, but he was also passionate about issues such as women’s equality, animal welfare and the unfairness of the English class system. As part of the project, I was tasked with exploring museum stores and archives to find objects that gave insights into Hardy’s complex personality. It was a magical voyage of discovery and it will be wonderful to share this fascinating treasure trove with our visitors."

This is a chance to ask questions and find out more about Thomas Hardy and the objects on show.
