The project conference, to be held on Thursday 14th & Friday 15th April at Temple Newsam House, Leeds, has now been finalised. The two day conference is an opportunity to hear about this AHRC funded 32 month research project focused on the history of the British Antique Trade in the 20th century.

The conference programme includes a selection of academic papers from the project team, together talks from well-known figures from the world of antiques, and high-profile antique dealers. There is also an ‘In Conversation’ session, with a selection of the oral history interviewees involved in the research project, as well as some facilitated discussion group sessions based around issues in the history of the antique trade.

Alongside these academic papers, talks and discussion groups there are also expert-led guided tours around our venue, Temple Newsam House, together with specialist sessions on antique dealer archives and museum object sessions as part of behind-the-scenes tours.

The conference fees include all sessions, tours etc and lunch on both days, together with an evening wine reception with music accompaniment from the historical musical instruments at Temple Newsam House.

The conference is both an opportunity for dissemination of the preliminary results of the research project, and celebrate and thank the many participants in the project.

We do hope you can join us for what we hope will prove to be a fascinating and lively two-day event.

Here is a Poster, with details of the programme and booking form. We very much look forward to welcoming you to Leeds.
