On the last Sunday of each month up until September, the historic Spalding venue is hosting a talk by a special guest.

Each event is limited to 40 people only, so anyone interested in attending is advised to book early.

On Sunday, June 25 Anthony Knight from the Typhoon Entente Cordiale Trust will give a talk on the history of the Hawker Typhoon aircraft.

The plane is a forgotten hero of World War Two and Anthony will focus on its technology, design and exciting stories of its pilots.

On Sunday, July 30 Professor Trevor Kerry presents 'The Falgate Talk'. Donald Falgate was a Grimsby man who quickly volunteered for service in World War Two.

He joined an Australian squadron based at Waddington and was a bomb aimer, and a master bomber. Despite this hazardous role, he survived a complete tour of duty and then went on to forge a peace-time career in the RAF.

Kev Rumens will talk about his career as a Modern Day Bomber Pilot on Sunday, August 27. Kev has flown the Vulcan XH558 as well as Tornados and he may also touch on his commercial flying of the Dreamliner.

On Sunday, September 24 Alastair Goodrum will focus on 'Women in Aviation'.

His talk will feature a selection of female aeronauts who have made significant contributions to the world of aviation during the past 200 years.

All of the events start at 2pm and cost £5 per person. To book tickets contact Ayscoughfee Hall on 01775 764555 or email museum@sholland.gov.uk.
