  • FAC Conference 2019

    July 23, 2019 – July 24, 2019

    The 2019 FAC Conference will be held at Liverpool and Chester Cathedrals, with accommodation in Liverpool. The Conference is a chance to meet together to discuss business under the Care of Cathedrals Measure, topics of common interest, and new developments, for example in legislation, funding and good practice. We encourage each cathedral to send their FAC Chair and Secretary, plus the Cathedral Administrator if they are not also the Secretary, as this is a valuable networking and professional development opportunity. Cathedral staff, cathedral architects and others with an interest in cathedral buildings and planning issues are also most welcome. There will be opportunities to share experiences and gain new perspectives with our host cathedrals.
