Attend the Churches Conservation Trust Annual Lecture

Your author has been doing a piece of work for a charity called the Churches Conservation Trust recently, and respects their efforts to preserve more than 300 Grade I and II* listed churches around the country no longer used as regular places of worship, and whilst no one pays for articles here, when a room of people asked with a smile yesterday if their annual lecture could feature here, he was happy to oblige.

The lecture is at the Royal Academy this evening and is being given by the writer Candida Lycett Green, the daughter of the late great poet, broadcaster and architectural campaigner Sir John Betjeman, and explores Lycett Green's love of churches in many different parts of the country. The proceeds go towards saving buildings which are more than just religious spaces, and are fascinating to Godless souls like your author as receptacles for the architecture, art and history of many different areas of England spanning more than 1,000 years.
