Lunchtime talk: Curating clowns

Discover the wonderful world of clowning as we reveal some of the fascinating people behind the make-up.

See clown costumes, archive photos and the fabulous Clown Egg Register. Find out about clown doctors, coulrophobia, female clowns, and curator favourites.

We’ll tell you where it all came from and pick out the local links. We’ll also reveal the weird and wonderful inspiration behind our kids’ trail, and even introduce you to an invisible dog!

Designed to fit around your lunch hour, our lunchtime talks explore a selection of treasures from our exhibitions and collections.
