IHBC at the Natural Stone Show 2019

30 April 2019 - 2 May 2019

30 April-2 May

Natural Stone Show

The IHBC will host its regular stand at the Natural Stone Show’s Conservation Area in April, in London’s ExCel, so please be sure to visit us there, and remember that this busy event also offers lots of free IHBC-recognised CPD including the regular Conservation Day, on Thursday 2 May.


The Natural Stone Show’s Conservation Area provides free advice, enlightening case studies and a forum for the exchange of information experience and opinions, helping you select the correct stone for building repair. Stone is an important part of the £3.6 billion conservation sector and has a thriving community of specialists committed to safeguarding the UK’s built heritage. This is represented at the show through a dedicated conservation area coordinated by Historic England and English Stone Forum, together with partner organisations including the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) and Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC).

Conservation Conference
Historic England and the English Stone Forum will oversee day three of the Natural Stone & Building Conservation Conference.

The free to attend Conservation Day takes place on Thursday 2 May 2019 with seminars addressing the selection and sourcing of stone for conservation projects. The Conservation Day is fully CPD-accredited by the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC). Seminars include:

  • Sourcing stone for repairing historic buildings: resources and guidance
  • Repair and conservation of historic slate and stone slate roofs: training and guidance
  • Stone Masonry and Conservation Training
  • Concrete repair: an international review project

The morning session, hosted by the English Stone Forum and chaired by Dr Tim Yates, considers the issues of material selection and appropriate skills for repairing England’s stone heritage.

In the afternoon, Historic England offers a selection of updates of current conservation research, chaired by Chris Wood.
