Our meeting schedule for 2022 is:
Wednesday, 30 March, 3-5pm at the Cathedral of St Barnabas, North Circus Street, Nottingham NG1 5AE. Peter Rogan, Conservation Architect and Director of Peter Rogan and Associates Limited and Cathedral Architect to the Catholic Cathedral Church of St. Barnabas in Nottingham, will present on the Cathedral’s Pugin Heritage Project. The Cathedral was built in the 1830s to the designs of the important neo-Gothic architect A.W.N. Pugin. The Project aims to restore the Pugin interior of the Cathedral and engage with the community of Nottingham to raise awareness of the rich history of the Cathedral, a hidden Pugin gem in the heart of the city. Working with Nottingham Trent University and conservation specialists will allow the architectural story of the building to be unlocked, which can then be shared with the public.

An information session led by Steve Smith, Community Organiser and Community Engagement Consultant with Sneinton Alchemy CIC, in which participants learn about dementia so that they can help their community.

Ms Harris has worked with the National Justice Museum, and is now working alongside D. H. Lawrence Birthplace, Bennerley Viaduct, Canalside Heritage Centre and other local museums, as well as supporting the Safer Museums network focusing on these issues.
