Dingwall Beloe Lecture

BP Lecture Theatre
The British Museum

This annual event was founded with funds bequeathed to the British Museum by Dr Eric Dingwall, formerly an Assistant Keeper of Printed Books in the British Library, and to the Clockmakers’ Company by Mr Reginald Beloe, the noted horological collector and Master of the Clockmakers’ Company in 1977. It is intended that these annual lectures should make new contributions to our understanding of the history of horology, at an international level.

For information on the next lecture and for a free ticket please go to www.britishmuseum.org/dingwall or telephone 020 7323 8181.
