The Birmingham based actor, writer and storyteller presents a talk entitled A Night in the Life of an Air Raid Warden on Tuesday (1 October, 2013) from 12.30pm.

It is the last in a series of events linked to Bantock's current exhibition about the Home Guard, On Parade - The Real Dad's Army, and curator Helen Steatham said: "Richard's first person interpretation of life in the Black Country during the Blitz is sure to be fascinating."  Bantock House was a radio control centre for the Home Guard during the Second World War, and it commemorates its association with the period with an annual series of events and activities, including a 1940s weekend.

Next week's talk is free. For more information, please contact Bantock House Museum on 01902 552195.
