Victorian Society – Welsh Heritage Day

3 September - 10:00 - 17:00

WELSH HISTORY AND ARCHITECTURE DAY CONFERENCE

Join the Victorian Society, Griff Rhys Jones in conversation with Dr Greg Ste- venson and leading figures in Welsh heritage and architecture.  Discover how you can help tackle the
challenges of caring for our buildings and monuments, great and small, in 21st century Wales.  Look at how the Welsh government,
planning and listing systems protect our historic buildings and structures.  Learn about the Victorian Society’s legal
role as guardian of Victorian and Ed- wardian architecture.  Griff Rhys Jones, Victorian Society Pres- ident, said: ‘Wales was totally transformed in the 19th century. Coal, slate and industry created an international economic powerhouse that left a legacy of amazing buildings – chapels, theatres, miners’ in- stitutes, great houses, industrial archaeology and more. Yet today this heritage is too often underappreciated, forgotten and decaying.  Welsh Heritage Day will give the public the tools they need to change that.  Book your tickets today!’
