Building Limes Forum Conference, Online, 6 November

Saturday 6th November 2021
Add to Calendar 06-11-2021 06-11-2021 Europe/London Building Limes Forum Conference, Online, 6 November

Building Limes Forum (BLF) members, lime enthusiasts, conservation professionals and trades from around the world are invited to book for this year’s Building Limes Forum conference taking place online on 6 November. It will be streaming live from Exeter Cathedral, famed for its Gothic architecture. The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Looking Back, Looking Forward: learning from the past to inform the future.’

The one-day event features a mix of recorded and live content, concluding with the Baker Memorial Lecture, this year being given by James Simpson, OBE HonDSc FRIAS, co-founder of the BLF and twice Chairman. James wrote an article for Natural Stone Specialist magazine called 'Stone & lime in post-modern construction: Climate change and a new stone age', which you can read here.

So that the social aspect of pre-pandemic events is not lost, the BLF is hosting regional events across Great Britain to enable participants to join others to network and socialise as well as enjoying the online lecture sessions. The regional hubs will include morning tours. The afternoon lectures will be streamed to each hub and there will be an optional evening meal at each venue.

The regional hubs are:

  • Bodmin, Cornwall, hosted by Cornish Lime
