Save the date: Building Limes Online Conference 6th November 2021

The Building Limes Forum (BLF) is pleased to announce its very first online conference which will be streaming live from Exeter Cathedral on Saturday 6th November 2021.

BLF members and lime enthusiasts from across the world will soon be able to pre-book their place at this year’s Building Limes Online Conference. This exciting one-day event features a mix of pre-recorded and live content which will be aired from Exeter Cathedral, famed for its Gothic architecture.

To retain the social aspect of previous events, the BLF is seeking hosts to organise small regional group gatherings (within Covid guidelines) on 6th November to enable participants to join others to watch this year’s conference online, share sessions, socialise and interact on the day. So far, hosts and venues have been secured in Exeter, York and Charlestown in Fife.

Ian Prince, Chairman of the Building Limes Forum, is thrilled that the conference can go ahead in its new format.

“Whether you are planning to join us online from the comfort of your own home or in a group with other fellow lime enthusiasts, we cannot wait to welcome you to this year’s conference. Although we cannot all be together, we hope you enjoy this new online experience which promises to be a great day with a fantastic line up of speakers.”

Booking details, ticket prices and the event programme will be published shortly. Members who would like to host a small regional Building Limes Online Conference gathering on Saturday 6th November are invited to email
