Emma Hamilton season

Join Deaf historian John Wilson for a BSL tour of our exhibition, Emma Hamilton: Seduction and Celebrity.

Emma Hamilton was one of the most famous international celebrities of her time and her life is the ultimate costume drama. Now largely remembered as the woman who captured the heart of the nation’s hero, Admiral Horatio Nelson, Emma was an extraordinary woman in her own right.

John also regularly conducts BSL tours of the iconic tea clipper Cutty Sark and her history.
