Sunday 20 October 2013
10.30 – 4.30

Speakers: Bob Woosnam- Savage – Curator of European Edged Weapons and Jonathan Ferguson, Curator of Firearms

Hollywood has depicted historical battles and fantasy weapons but how does reality match up to the silver screen?

Join our curators to handle historic objects from the Royal Armouries collection and limited edition weapons made by Lord of the Rings-specialists, the WETA Workshop.

  • All of the seminars run from 10:30 to 4:30 and take place at the Royal Armouries Museum, Leeds.
  • Lunch is not provided, but there is a bistro and a café plus a picnic area in the Museum.
  • Booking is essential as the seminars tend to sell out quickly and places are limited to 20 delegates per seminar.

Proof of photographic ID such as passport or driving license is needed for all seminars. Entrance may be denied without suitable identification.

Tickets can also be booked by phone or email.
