This exhibition will explore ideas of The Apocalypse in times of crisis through creative expression, poetry and other writings, and will support visitors in understanding human reactions to crises and change. The exhibition will be particularly suitable for those interested in religion, social history and women’s history, and will be a useful resource for Sixth Form students studying related subjects.
The Panacea Museum is an appropriate venue for discussions around The Apocalypse, and The Panacea Society was formed here over 100 years ago, ending in 2012. This Christian group believed that the end times were imminent, and looked forward to immortality in their own Garden of Eden here in Bedford.
Entry to the museum and exhibition is free, and no booking is required. The exhibition will be accompanied by two free talks:
- 'The Second Coming' - 9 November, 13:00 - 14:00
- 'When Adam Delved, and Eve Span' - 16 November, 13:00 - 14:00
Booking is required for both talks.
