Discovering the Real Repton
November 5, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 6:00 pm| £68 – £78
County Gardens Trusts’ researchers from across the country will present short but in-depth talks on their research findings. The programme is still coming together with some excellent speakers.
The final programme will be sent to delegates who have booked closer to the date but we’d like to tempt you with the following outline of the day:
We will begin from 10.30am with coffee and registration and a welcome by Christopher Woodward, the Museum’s Director. The morning session, from 11.00am, will be chaired by Professor Stephen Daniels and the afternoon one, from 14.30, by Professor Tom Williamson. The order and number of presentations is subject to change.
