Our new public programming will expand opportunities for learning with talks and workshops.
Our expanded talks programme will cover a range of topics that touch on Hogarth, other residents of the House, Georgian life and gardening.
Virtual series: Midday Modern Conversations
This Spring and Summer, members of our team are having conversations with specialists and experts on a range of intriguing topics including: 18th century lapdogs, printing, mulberry trees and more! Our conversations will, we hope be a little more coherent than those taking place in the Hogarth work that was the inspiration for the series name. Videos available on our YouTube channel and below. Podcast available from https://anchor.fm/hogarths-house
