This year’s one-day Conference, on the theme of Celebrations & Commemorations, was to have been held on 21 March. In discussion with the University of West London where it was to have taken place, the consortium of local societies behind this event (of which B&CLHS is one) has agreed to postpone the Conference, probably until the autumn.

The consortium is very sorry to have to disappoint potential participants. Given the unpredictable rate of the spread of the Corona Virus, and in line with a number of other conference organisers, we feel that it would be irresponsible to go ahead and risk infecting the local history community in South and West London.

Tickets will still be valid for the rescheduled event and should be retained. Every effort will be made to let ticket-holders know the future arrangements when they have been agreed. Those who bought their tickets from one of the sponsoring societies should keep in touch with them regarding the plans for the re-scheduled event.  Those who bought tickets by post will be contacted by the consortium’s treasurer in the near future.

The sponsoring societies look forward to welcoming our many supporters once again later in 2020.

Postponement of Society meeting on 16 March 2020

After a careful discussion we have agreed with our speaker that it would be best to postpone her talk on The Hidden Horticulturists. We believe it is a wise precaution to avoid infection while the nature and rate of the spread of Corona Virus is unpredictable.

This means that we will not have a B&CLHS meeting on 16 March. We are sorry to disappoint members and others who were planning to come along but we hope to reschedule the talk as part of our future programme.
