Salisbury branch: The wonderful world of glass with Dr Francis Burroughes

Loading Events

Join ESUs Salisbury and Wiltshire branch for an interactive experience that explores the history of glass-making.

From his own collection, Dr Burroughes brings historic and valuable items of glass for members to examine for themselves, to illustrate the history of glass-making from 3,000 B.C. to the present day. He is an acknowledged expert and is often asked to lend pieces and speak about them for various television antique programmes.

To book your place please contact the Luncheon Secretary – Julia Tibbs. Tel, 01722 325552 or e-mail,

Guests are welcome to arrive from 10.15 for coffee, followed by the interactive workshop and talk and finishing with lunch.
