This year’s Symposium is to be held at the Green Dragon Hotel, opposite the Cathedral, in Hereford city centre. The Symposium will focus on the cathedral and surrounding Herefordshire countryside, where there is a wealth of monuments. A varied lecture programme will explore the fabulous Romanesque carving at Kilpeck, arms and armour worn by Herefordshire knights, and cathedral monuments and brasses.

WALKING TOUR OF CAMBRIDGE CHURCHES & CHAPELS: This has now been postponed until 2018.

We are aware that the costs of excursions have (inevitably) been rising. I propose to lead a cheaper walking tour of Cambridge churches and college chapels, no fewer than eight, no more than ten, and including Gonville & Caius, which has the most important set of early modern monuments in Cambridge. No refreshments will be provided, but we'll leave a long gap for lunch and finish in time for participants to get tea before the Evensong at Kings & St John's Colleges (5.30/6.30).

Booking form and further details with newsletter.
