2021 Gathering

The BLF Conference and Gathering, originally scheduled for early September 2020 at Exeter, did not take place as planned to the coronavirus pandemic. A mass gathering in 2021 cannot be held, so instead a one-day online conference will be held of

Saturday 6 November 2021

The conference will consist of presentations, Q&A sessions, and demonstrations.  These will be pre-recorded or live-streamed and recorded. After the event it is hoped that a selection of presentations and demonstratins will be made available online.

The theme for the 2021 Conference and Gathering is Looking Back, Looking Forward: learning from the past to inform the future.  There will be demonstrations at Exeter Cathedral, where the west front, second only to Wells for its parade of medieval sculpture, was worked on by Eve and Robert Baker in the 1970s.

If restrictions allow, we can also gather in smaller groups at regional venues to watch and socialise.

Booking will open in August.  Meanwhile, put the date in your diaries!
