Historic England and the University of Leicester are hosting a conference at Stamford Court, Leicester on 14-15 December 2015.
*Parish Church Interiors in Changing Times*
This conference focuses on Church of England parish church interiors of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, what makes them significant, what we mean by significance, how we assign value to 19th and 20th century church interiors, what impact this has on their use and management, and how we balance significance and the introduction or improvement of facilities.
This conference is accredited by the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) and attendance certificates will be issued to all attending delegates.
Keynote speakers include:
The Bishop of Worcester - the Right Reverent John Inge
The Dean of the Court of Arches - the Right Worshipful Charles George, QC.
Dr. Loyd Grossman - Chairman, Churches Conservation Trust
