Discover the tales of our sacred art and architecture, learn from one another at our annual volunteering conference

Have fun, network and learn about our sacred art!

I am delighted to invite you to our annual volunteering conference, a must-attend event for our fantastic volunteer team.

2016 has seen the completion of some inspiring conservation projects, which we’ll be celebrating and sharing learnings from at this year's conference. We’ll be joined some great key speakers:

Hugh Harrison FSA is the longest-established independent timber conservation contractor in the UK. We’ll learn about his painstaking conservation work to the recovered stolen 15th century rood screen panels from Holy Trinity Church in Torbryan, which hit the news headlines in 2015.

Jane Rutherfoord, wall paintings specialist has spent over 20 years protecting the fragmented layered wall paintings, some of which date back to the 13th century at St John the Baptists’ church in Inglesham. She’ll share her unique insight gained from decades of working on William Morris’ favourite church. 

The "market place" format of this year's event will give you the chance to meet many fellow volunteers along with CCT specialists and experts in a relaxed informal setting.

We’ll be seeking nominations for our annual Volunteer Oscar ceremony – a chance to acknowledge the achievements of a CCT volunteer you think deserves it.

And of course as always a fabulous lunch will be served by the Grand Hotel for everyone to enjoy. Please do advise any dietry or access requirements.

A full programme will be sent to delegates prior to the event.

We hope you can make it and look forward to seeing you there.


RSVP your place by the 29th of September
