Birmingham Museums Trust launches ‘museums on demand’ digital broadcast service 4 Feb 2021

Birmingham Museums is launching a ‘Museums on Demand’ service, broadcasting talks from its museums online, packaged to be available on a month-long £20 ticket. Audiences are encouraged to attend both as a route to enjoying the museums during lockdown and as a way of offering financial support, with members and patrons receiving a 25% discount. The opening schedule for February offers two one-hour lectures on museum collections (one on the Bredon Hill Roman coin hoard, one on ‘love, betrayal, poison and death’ as a theme in art) and two more focused talks on the painting ‘Work’ by Ford Madox Brown and on the Ice House at Aston Hall. Commercial Director Alex Nicholson-Evans said "when many people are still isolated at home and our museums remain closed, Birmingham Museums On Demand is a way of making people feel more connected to Birmingham's rich and vibrant collections and historic properties.
