Through contributions from renowned heritage professionals, artists, planners, academics and other market towns, the conference aims to explore and exploit our common ground – across heritage, the arts, planning and academia to create pathways; designed to assist with the creation of place grounded strategies.

The conference, titled New Ways of Seeing: Creating Pathways to Confident Market Towns, will feature a range of presentations, national speakers, exhibitions, film and workshops as well as catering using all local produce.

The group has received considerable support and local sponsorship to host the conference and it is free to attend. There is an optional evening meal and dinner speaker. To reserve a place (essential), email John Robertson jar.61@btinernet.com
