Our Speakers

His Honour Neil McKittrick is Chair of the Trust, a Deputy Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire and a former High Sheriff of Cambridgeshire and a former circuit judge.

Professor Sandy Heslop is a former Professor of Visual Arts at the University of East Anglia.  His research interests are the art and architecture of medieval England; the role of imagination in the creation and reception of artefacts; the relationship of art and history; the impact of environment and resources on manufacture; art as information and rhetoric; architecture as image.

Dr Miriam Gill researches later medieval wall paintings in Britain and is a committed adult educator and founder member of Leicester Vaughan College. She teaches Art History to adults for the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford and with Pro Artium for Northampton Museum. After a first degree in History (Corpus Christi, Oxford), she focussed on the content and context of murals between the time of the Black Death and the Reformation for her doctorate from the Wall Paintings Department of the Courtauld Institute of Art.

Clare Price is the Head of Casework for the Twentieth Century Society and has worked in commercial property and conservation for over 20 years. A qualified Chartered Surveyor, Clare holds an MA in Geography from the University of Cambridge (St John’s College) and an MSc in Conservation of the Historic Environment. Clare’s doctoral research at the University of Oxford considered the design process of Church of England churches built between the wars.

The Revd Canon David Pritchard is Vice-Chair of the Trust and Chair of its Executive Committee and was formerly Precentor, Vice-Dean and later Acting Dean of Ely.

Michael Hodges read History at Balliol College, Oxford, before spending forty years in the City. He is writing a book on the subject of his lecture. He is currently the architectural correspondent of the Catholic Herald. He is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries.

Our venue

The Lee Hall is a fully equipped, purpose-built lecture hall. Lunch is served in the comfortable and attractive setting of the Combination Room.

Wolfson College is located just within the southwestern city limits of Cambridge, on the left of Barton Road A603, approaching Cambridge from M11 Junction 12. A map and directions can be found at www.wolfson.cam.ac.uk/directions. Cambridge railway station is some distance away, and delegates arriving by rail are advised to hire taxis. There is parking in some nearby streets. If you have limited mobility, please indicate, as we have a very small supply of permits to park within the College. Otherwise, passengers can be dropped off at the rear entrance in Selwyn Gardens, close to Lee Hall, and the driver can look for parking on the street.
