The Monumental Brass Society and The Church Monuments Society are hosting a joint conference which will be held at the Duke’s Head Hotel in King’s Lynn between Friday 25th and Sunday 27th September 2020.

The theme is ‘Status and Display’ with excursions to the chapel of St Nicholas and St Margaret’s church in the town (Friday afternoon) and to the village churches of Oxborough, Narborough, South Acre and Rougham (Saturday) where a team of experts will introduce a remarkable series of medieval and early modern funerary monuments and brasses in north-west Norfolk.

The conference fee includes accommodation, breakfast and evening meals, all tea and coffee breaks, Sunday lunch and attendance on the excursions and lectures. Accommodation at the hotel is en-suite in single, double and twin rooms. It is limited and will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.

Members are also welcome to arrange their own accommodation and to attend on a non-residential basis and will need to do so if the demand for rooms exceeds our allocation at the Duke’s Head. King’s Lynn has a wide range of accommodation to suit all budgets including a Premier Inn and a Travelodge.
