Outing to see British Museum exhibition: Troy – myth and reality
Don’t let the New Year blues get you. Come out with us to see the breathtaking art inspired by the legend of Troy.
We will meet at 10.45am by the information desk in the main hall and go in at 11am. You will need to buy a ticket (£22 full price, various concessions) beforehand, for the 11am slot. If that gets booked up, get one for the nearest time and they may well let us all in at the same time. If you are travelling by train, 2FOR1 savings apply.
We will meet in the café afterwards.
The blurb says: The legend of Troy has endured for more than 3,000 years. The story of a great city, plunged into a 10-year war over the abduction of the most beautiful woman in the world, is irresistibly dramatic and tragic… From Helen of Troy’s abduction to the deception of the Trojan Horse and the fall of the city, tread the line between myth and reality in this phenomenal new exhibition.
