Events

We are delighted to bring you a new series of live online talks commencing on July 14th 2020.  Our first series ‘Historic Heroines’ is presented by authors Elizabeth St. John and Nicola Cornick and features historical women of Lydiard House who have witnessed and changed history.

We regretfully postponed our planned events and activities programme for spring and summer this year, due to Coronavirus. We aim to reschedule our talks programme when circumstances allow, so if you already have a ticket it will remain valid.

Our events and activities including talks, tours and Lydiard heritage trails are open to the general public and we intend to reschedule these when the national agenda becomes clearer.   In the meantime we hope you’ll enjoy our live online talks.
