Conference : Day 3 – Conservation Day

Day 3
Conservation Day
Thursday 2 May 2019


Authenticity and appearance when repairing historic buildings

The 2017 Conservation Conference took place in the South Gallery rooms above the Natural Stone Show and was organised in conjunction with Historic England and the English Stone Forum.

The free to attend conference began with the launch of the Stone Federation Heritage Register.

The morning session, hosted by the English Stone Forum, examined the issues of authenticity and appearance when repairing historic buildings, whilst in the afternoon, Historic England offered an overview of some recent developments in stone conservation, including updates from recent research projects.

The Conservation Day will once again form day 3 of the Natural Stone Show Conference, with the 2019 programme released in the months prior to the show.
