Join conservator Emma Bowron and curator of Leeds/Social History Kitty Ross for the final talk in this year’s season of events as part of the Danger Zone exhibition.

Explore some of the hazards – seen and unseen – lurking in museum collections, and learn how museum professionals ensure a safe environment around the collections, parts of which date from eras with very different understandings about health and safety.

Tickets for this talk are £5.50, which includes admission into Abbey House Museum, and booking is essential.
