The Garstang Festival of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology (ACE) is a celebration of the University of Liverpool department and Garstang Museum past and present. For the first time ever, the department is fully opening its doors to the public, giving people the opportunity to learn about and participate in the interesting research being carried out here within ACE.

The Garstang Festival will begin with a series of evening lectures on the history of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology at the University of Liverpool. This will be an opportunity to learn about the quirky characters that founded the department and the interesting professions of the current staff.

The talks will be followed by a canapes and drinks reception held in the stunning surroundings of the VGM. The public will get the chance to speed-date some of the experts from ACE and find out more about their exciting, individual projects.
