Curators Floor Talk - Motoring Icons: The Volkswagen Beetle

11th Nov 2018, 9.30am – 14th Nov 2018, 4.30pm

The final in a series of four talks by Museum Curator Matt Piper, Matt draws upon his many years’ experience as Curator at the Museum as well as his natural and contagious enthusiasm for all things motoring related to deliver a thought provoking, fun and informative talk. Matt’s delivery style is informal and he welcomes an interactive audience.

“The Volkswagen, or ‘Beetle’ as it became known, was born into a dark time in world history but went on to put a smile on the faces of countless millions of people and remains just as popular today.  With over 21 million units produced over a period of 65 years, this ‘People’s Car’ is without doubt worthy of iconic status and we will be celebrating its illustrious and interesting history.”
