'An Evening With' Talks and Lectures

An Evening With

More than just a museum, we have set the bar high with an eclectic series of ‘An Evening With’ lectures and performances running from 21st September until 18th December. 

Spanning decades, momentous points in history, intriguing topics, curious characters and of course, the odd horse or two. Palace House will be joined by some of the country’s most well-known historians for a variety of evenings to indulge the mind. Learn from some of the best lecturers, curators, doctors, historians and detectives in the picturesque and historical settings of Kings Charles II palace in the heart of Newmarket.

Upon arrival with each and every talk, you will start your evening with a glass of fizz, and if that wasn't enough, to make the most out of your evening, attendees of the lectures are encouraged to visit the on-site restaurant, The Tack Room, which will be offering 10% off your bill at the end of your talk.

The Tack Room serves delicious delights to cater for everybody featuring locally sourced and organic ingredients. The perfect accompaniment to an evening of learning.
