FREE Online Lecture - Simon Swynfen Jervis
Sunday, 12 July 2020, 19.00 (BST)
The Society runs an extensive Events programme including day visits to a variety of institutions, private collections and places of interest, study weekends and overseas tours.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has affected many of our planned events and will continue to do so for the coming months. We are postponing many of our visits and holding others entirely online. If any events advertised here need to be postponed we will offer to those who have expressed interest the option of a refund or the chance to re-book at a later date.
The Annual Lecture and Annual Symposium (and, most likely, the AGM) will all be held online this year. We will be sending all members emails with the links to follow in due course and we will update the website as our plans progress.
ONLINE LECTURE PROGRAMME
While we cannot arrange physical visits and many members are restricted to their homes, we have arranged a series of free, online Sunday-evening lectures available to all during June and July, in collaboration with our colleagues at the BIFMO (British and Irish Furniture Makers Online) project. We think this is a valuable addition to our Events programme and we plan to continue to present online lectures as a regular feature in the future. Members will be sent links to the lectures by email, and if any non-members would like to watch, please contact the Events Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org for the link. Please keep checking the website for details of more lectures.
In normal times, members are entitled to attend any of the various lectures or symposia held throughout the year and participate in special visits, study weekends or tours, subject to availability of places. There is also a programme of early evening study events organised by the FHS Grants Committee, specifically for junior museum/heritage curators, MA/PhD students & young professionals in the trade. For further information on these events click here.

GRANTS AVAILBLE for FHS UK & Overseas visits including one day visits
The FHS Grants Committee now meet quarterly to consider all applications from members, to support their participation in FHS foreign and UK study trips where the cost of a trip exceeds £45. Please contact Jill Bace at email@example.com for further information and grant application forms.
Please note that no refunds will be given for cancellations for events costing £10.00 or less. In all other cases, cancellations will be accepted up to seven days before the date of a visit, but refunds will be subject to a £10.00 deduction for administrative costs. Please note that in the rare instances where members cannot pay until the day of a visit, they will still be charged the full amount for the day if cancelling less than seven days before the visit, or if they fail to attend. This is necessary as the Society has usually paid in advance for a certain number of members to participate in e.g. a tour/lunch. Separate arrangements are made for study weekends and foreign tours and terms are clearly stated on the printed details in each case.
