The event will commence at 6pm. at the map, where the designer, Janette Ireland, and members of the team will be able to answer questions.

 At 6.30 pm there will be an opportunity to view the Yorkshire Museum’s own copy of the original map in the Museum Library and associated displays in the Reading Room and Atrium.

At 7.15pm those present will be invited into  Tempest Anderson Hall, where there will be a short program thanking the donors and others who have helped.

This will be followed at 7.30 by the lecture ‘Back to the Future of William Smith’s map – meeting modern needs for geological knowledge’ by Dr Andy Howard, Science Director, B.G.S. See separate event notice for further details.

After the lecture, there will be a special reception in the Atrium, by invitation only, for donors and other helpers.
