Conservation & Heritage: champions and challenges

A residential symposium in Liverpool’s historic centre

Liverpool has more listed buildings than any other city in the UK outside of London, and as such is a fitting location for Martin Randall Travel’s 2018 symposium; Conservation and Heritage.

Taking place over three days (7–9 November), this ambitious symposium brings together movers and shakers in the world of architectural conservation to examine the impact of tourism and new developments, as well as celebrating the skills and scholarship that make restoration and regeneration possible. Topics range from conservation in conflict zones in the Middle East, to Windsor Castle 25 Years after the Fire and championing the UK’s northern architectural heritage.

The symposium is held at Bluecoat, the oldest standing building in the city centre, together with an evening lecture and reception in the Grade 1-listed Town Hall. Among the twelve speakers are Sir Simon Jenkins, Sir Donald Insall, Dr Simon Thurley, Jane da Mosto, Marcus Binney, Henrietta Billings and John Darlington.

Prices from £580 pp (two sharing). Includes 2 nights hotel accommodation, breakfasts, refreshments and one dinner, admission to the talks, and some coach travel within Liverpool.
