It’s less that 4 weeks to go until we host the annual Civic Voice Conference at The REP on 19-20 October! The conference will focus on “How do we balance conservation and regeneration?” which is pertinent for our city which is changing almost on a daily basis with the level of regeneration happening. But how do we conserve some of the city’s greatest assets? Join us, other civic societies and professionals from across the country to debate this issue. 

We have an outstanding line up of keynote speakers lined up for Friday 19 October including Sir Terry Farrell (Farrells), Ben Derbyshire (RIBA President), Ros Kerslake (CEO of Heritage Lottery Fund) and Deborah Lamb (Deputy Chief Executive of Historic England) to name just a few. 

Included in the ticket price are a number of workshops, talks and tours on Saturday 20th for you to sign up to on the day – from seeing Birmingham’s canal heritage by canoe to workshops on conservation area appraisals and more. 

The conference will give you the opportunity to meet with individuals involved in conservation and regeneration projects across the country and comment on how we can balance regeneration and conservation. 

Birmingham Civic Society are members of Civic Voice so your ticket will be £60.00/person for this two-day conference. To find out more about the conference programme and to book, follow this link.
