UK – Church Buildings Council Conservation Symposium – October 2011, London

The Challenges of the Conservation of Artworks in Churches – 11 October 2011, Westminster Abbey, London

The Church Buildings Council (Church of England) is organising an international forum to discuss the complex issues that impact on the conservation and display of unique artworks in churches. This event will allow the opportunity to reflect on conservation projects currently being carried out in various European countries. Our aim is to promote wider discussion within our sector and share best practice.

The Symposium will be chaired by Anne Sloman OBE, Chair of the Church Buildings Council, and it will be hosted by Westminster Abbey. The programme includes a tour of the Abbey with visit of current projects (including ongoing works to the 14th century Coronation Chair and the recently conserved 13th century Cosmati pavement).
