The Paint Detective – an evening with Patrick Baty

Tuesday 16 March 2021, 7pm

Online talk via Zoom

Tickets: £5

An expert on the paint and colours of the past four centuries, Patrick Baty works with homeowners, estates, museums, public bodies and institutions, to reinstate interiors of the past, or to create a scheme sympathetic with the aims of a space and its current and future use.

In this online talk, Patrick explains how he combines the skills of an historian, detective and analyst to uncover the stories of historic buildings. This will be illustrated with a number of projects that he has completed in the Richmond area, including The King’s Observatory.


‘Lockdown Richmond’ Commemorative Quilt

From 15 December 2020

In March 2020, we experienced the first national lockdown to slow the spread of COVID-19. In response to the complex challenges and emotions raised during this time, the residents of London Borough of Richmond upon Thames created squares for a unique memorial quilt, which will be on display at the Museum of Richmond from Tuesday 15 December.

Due to the Museum’s closure, we have created a virtual display of the quilt that you can access here.
