To launch our increased and interactive online Forum, we are delighted to announce our forthcoming series of talks by the Historic Towns and Villages Forum's Board of Directors.
These talks will be available to watch at any time, with the opportunity to join a live Q&A session (online) with each speaker on specified dates in the coming weeks. We'll publish the list of topics, speakers and Q&A dates here so that you can plan when to watch them, and book your seat in our virtual forum via Eventbrite.
Please let us know if you would like help in advance of the forum to get things correctly plugged in and turned up!
These events are free and we look forward to seeing you then...

Coming up - Thursday 11 June 2020
Temporary pedestrian spaces for social distancing in historic town centres
Historic England is hosting a webinar on improved public space for shoppers, workers and visitors, which will be needed to safely reopen the historic high streets that lie at the heart of our most loved towns and cities. Many are conservation areas where Historic England advice could help them adapt to current restrictions on movement, whilst celebrating their place in our communities and avoiding accidental loss to our shared heritage.
webinar will look at the issues, opportunities and guidance for
the temporary expansion of pedestrian and cyclist space in historic places,
and enables you to share your thoughts on what Historic England could do
next to guide temporary measures funded through schemes such as the
Reopening High Streets Safely Fund. This event is free - Register here
