Opening Times

£10 / £5 for TDR members
Sandra and Max will explore the adventures he has embarked on to capture astounding photographs, focussing on his recently published book ‘Birth of a Volcano’, copies of which you will be able to purchase on the night, Max will also be signing his books.

In March 2021 a new volcano erupted in Iceland where none had appeared for 800 years. Max Milligan managed to escape the UK lockdown and spend 3 months capturing images from intimate close ups to panoramics on foot, by plane and helicopter. He was the only one of over 200 photographers to capture the aurora borealis directly over the lava spewing crater. His lecture includes stunning pictures, extraordinary adventures, hilarious moments and some nudity.

Max Milligan is an author, raconteur and fine art photographer renowned for his painterly eye and the fact that he uses no filters, flash and only minimal digital correction in his work.

All eight of Max’s books will be available to purchase on the night, or you can buy them ahead of time via the event website.


All tickets include a complimentary cocktail specially curated for the evening.

'Sandra's Salon' brings a regular programme of cultural and fun events to The Drawing Rooms in Bath. As per salon tradition, audience participation and conversation are greatly encouraged.
Part of Sandra Higgins' collaboration as Arts Curator with The Drawing Rooms.
