We are delighted to return to in-person events at Salford Museum & Art Gallery, offering a programme of talks and tours.
Visit the events page for full listings. Upcoming highlights include an ‘in conversation’ event between digital artist Anna Ridler, writer/curator Georgia Ward-Dyer, and RHS Bridgewater gardener Sylvia Travers.
If you can’t make it in person, all of our talks will be livestreamed on the Salford Museum Facebook page – plus recordings will be made available online later in the year.

Do you have a favourite tree in Salford? Maybe it’s a tree you have climbed up or sheltered under. Maybe you planted it. Maybe it was already hundreds of years old when you were born…
As the leaves fall in Autumn 2021, artist Lowri Evans will be getting to know the trees and the people that love them around Salford as part of a new project for the University of Salford Art Collection in collaboration with Salford Museum & Art Gallery.
This project will pay attention to the cycles of nature, life death and life again, and how we can learn from trees and apply it to our personal lives. Seeing life decay and nourish new life again.
Share your favourite tree with us – post your images, stories or memories on social media using the hashtag #SalfordTrees (on Twitter and Instagram) and tagging Lowri at @LowriEvans on Twitter or @thelowri on Instagram. (On Facebook, just post your image in our comments!)
