 Reconnections – Sustainability and our Industrial, Maritime and Transport Heritage

 Titanic Hotel, Stanley Dock, Liverpool

 Tuesday 20th October 2015    10am – 4.30pm

 This year for our Autumn meeting we have been invited to join a major Conference in Liverpool organized by the Maritime Heritage Trust as this vitally important theme is of common interest.

 Keynote speakers on 20 October will include Sir Neil Cossons, Sara Crofts, Head of Historic Environment at the Heritage Lottery Fund, Paul Lewin, General Manager of the Festiniog and Welsh Highland Railways as well as speakers from National Historic Ships, the Transport Trust, the Association of British Transport and Engineering Museums and the National Railway Museum. The day will include a series of workshops with experts on applying for grants, successful project operation, fund-raising and attracting new generations of supporters and volunteers. Building effective local partnerships will be an underlying theme. Further details are at www.maritimeheritage.org.uk/programme2015.

The Conference is FREE to attend thanks to sponsorship from: the Cities of Liverpool, Cardiff and Belfast, the Transport Trust, National Historic Ships, the Association of British Transport and Engineering Museums, The Maritime Heritage Trust and locally the Titanic Hotel, Stanley Dock, Liverpool.  The Titanic hotel, the Conference venue, is one of the most remarkable historic building conversions in the region in recent years.
