Zoom Talks from the Honeywood Museum
The Honeywood Museum is a beautiful Grade II listed building beside the picturesque ponds of Carshalton.
Honeywood is home to family-friendly displays and collections in a building dating back to the 17th century. The exquisite range of exhibits tell of the history of the house and its occupants.
The museum runs a great range of events throughout the year that shine a light on the history of the local area, including talks, walks and concerts as well as education activities for local schools. There's also a peaceful cafe/tea room on site and a shop selling a gifts, historic publications, toys and greeting cards.
The museum is currently closed and in person activities have been curtailed due to the lockdown. However the Friends of Honeywood Museum have been running an online book club over the last few months along with some virtual exhibitions such as their picture postcard display.
Starting in February, a number of online talks will take place presented by City of London guide Ian Bevan and local historian and archeologist John Phillips. Talks will cover the history of the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, a look at three local parks and a virtual walk revisiting the path of the Fire of London as well as the home of diarist Samuel Pepys.
These illustrated talks will take place over Zoom. Participation in each event costs just £4. To gain access please email Susan Hoskin. The Zoom code will be issued on the day of each event.
Honeywood talks are highly recommended and are always fascinating and full of interesting detail and intensive research.
