Heritage Conference in Liverpool for aspiring conservationists

Deane Road Jewish Cemetery is holding a conference at METAL, Edge Hill Station, Liverpool about our recent heritage lottery funded restoration.

We're aiming it at people/groups who are either thinking of applying for heritage lottery grants or are maybe in the initial stages already, it'll be useful to see where we went right and wrong and hopefully make it a bit easier for future applicants. It should be of interest to anyone who is interested in local history, heritage restoration in general or have followed the cemetery project maybe just wanting to find out how we got on.

Tickets are £30 full price (or £15 if you are part of a registered charity)
