Northern Lectures Weekend 2020

Friday 2nd – Sunday 4th October

We’ve been talking about this event for a long time. It’s finally happening!

Join us for Northern Lectures Weekend. A grand title for something which will hopefully be a quite relaxed chance to learn from each other, and discover the subjects which motivate and inspire your fellow pilgrims. We have eight people who will be sharing their knowledge and expertise with us.

Each “Lecture” will consist of a talk 15 minutes max in length, followed by 30 minutes for discussion. The workshops will be interactive and you will be encouraged to actively take part.

Everything will take place on zoom. Some of the sessions will be recorded so that those who miss it can watch back later.
