An Exclusive Online Talk for Members of the Ashmolean

Exclusively for Members

With Dr Xa Sturgis, Director of the Ashmolean Museum

Dr Xa Sturgis opened our series of Illuminating Insights talks back in January 2023, and will close it for us in December.

Always illuminating and absorbing, his talks are guaranteed to delight, but this one is a mystery. Sign up now, and we’ll tell you more in December!

The talk will be available to watch live on Zoom and a recording will be shared with ticketholders on request, following the event.

About the Illuminating Insights series

The Illuminating Insights series of monthly talks, conceived by our Member Events volunteer team, will offer supporters an intimate look behind the scenes of the Museum's collections. Each talk will be led by one of our curators or Museum experts exploring some of the more unusual, little-known Ashmolean treasures, and including a look at current research projects and conservation work. At the end of each talk there will be a Q&A for attendees to exchange views with our experts.


This past event has now taken place.
