About the event

Discover the history of the Artists Rifles in the Museum’s collections. The Artists Rifles regiment was formed in 1860 by a group of painters, architects, poets, sculptors, musicians and actors concerned about a possible French invasion. Notable members included William Morris, Frederick Leighton and Noël Coward.

Artists Rifles expert Patrick Baty will speak about the history of the regiment, and Museum curator Emma Mawdsley will highlight some of the Museum’s collections relating to those who served in the unit.

Light refreshments will be provided.
