In normal times, in addition to the lecture programme, the society arranges trips to exhibitions and collections both in the UK and abroad.

In recent years we have visited the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, Bolton Museum, with its spectacular full-size replica of the tomb of Thutmose III, and the superb Tutankhamun Exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery.

We have travelled to see the major Egyptian collections in Leiden, Munich and Budapest.

Once we are no longer constrained by Covid-19 restrictions, we hope to venture forth again and details of future events will be posted here.


WAES Late Summer Social


 
Given the success of last social we are meeting again,  on Wednesday 22nd Sept 
Meet at 2pm at Cafe Creme in New Brighton we will walk to Seacombe Ferry and back. There is ample opportunity to pick up an ice cream on the way, either Café Creme in New Brighton or the Cafe in Vale Park (which I think has far superior ice cream!).
On our return journey we can call in the Ferry pub, which has outdoor seating, for a refreshment and rest stop if required.
