Tuesday 25 June, 5.30-7.00pm
With NHSN Archivist, June Holmes
The notable Victorian naturalists Albany and John Hancock lived and worked in Newcastle and are well known for their contribution to our understanding of local natural history: but what about their sister Mary Jane and their brother Thomas? Find out more about the extended Hancock family through the photographs and documents in our archives.
There will be a small exhibition of Mary Jane’s art works on display with family memorabilia as well as the legacy work of the Hancock brothers.
Booking essential. To book, please go to Eventbrite here.
