Downside is excited to announce the first half of its 2020 lecture series, with a mix of different topics from some well respected speakers. 

The lecture series features talks on: Dante, St Alphege, the Archaeology of Bath Abbey, Abbot Historians and the commemoration of the 80th anniversary of the evacuation at Dunkirk. We are also lucky to welcome esteemed speakers such as Dr Ben Pohl, Dr Giles Mercer, George Ferzoco and Cai Mason. 

Our partnership with the University of Bristol has also allowed us to welcome two of their lecturers here. Dr Ben Pohl’s lecture on Abbot Historians is part of his ongoing project with Downside in association with the British Academy. Dr Pohl’s project blog can be found here.

We will be adding more lectures to the series for the second half of the year so make sure you check our website to find out the dates for these.
