A collection of short philatelic films and talks for your viewling pleasure

Hello and welcome to the Stanley Gibbons 'Mini-Talks' Theatre. We asked our teams to create a number of short videos discussing items or areas of philately that we hope you'll find interesting. There are 5 different talks in the theatre with our showcase presentation in screen 1 discussing the true value of the Penny Red. We have tried to offer something for everyone so please, make a cup of tea, get comfortable, and enjoy the show.
