Summer Conference 2017: ‘Russet-Coated Soldiers: A BCMH conference on the British Civil Wars’
7 July @ 9:00 am - 9 July @ 5:00 pm
The British Commission for Military History (BCMH), in partnership with the National Civil War Centre (NCWC), the Society of Army Historical Research (SAHR) and the English Civil War Society (ECWS) is organizing a conference on military aspects of the British Civil Wars 1642-51 to be held at the National Civil War Centre, Newark, Notts from 7 to 9 July 2017.
The keynote lectures will be provided by Professor John Morrill (University of Cambridge) and Dr Andrew Hopper (University of Leicester).
The Conference will include:
- A Tour of Civil War Newark
- Demonstrations by the English Civil War Society (ECWS)
- A Presentation about and visit to the Civil War siegeworks at Newark.
Please note that whilst the speakers are confirmed the programme remains subject to amendment at this stage.
Tickets are only available by the Day and need to be booked separately for each day. I am sorry that I was unable to find a way of streamlining the process for those wishing to book both days.
Tickets for Friday 7th and Saturday 8th July cost £60.00 discounted to £50 for full members of the BCMH and to £30 for speakers and for BCMH members who hold valid Student ID.
Each Day Ticket includes all refreshments at the breaks, a buffet lunch, a drinks reception and a Civil War Tour or drill demonstration.
Tickets for Sunday 9th July will be priced at £10. These will be available on the day at the NCWC. They will offer admission to the presentation about the siegeworks at Newark and further demonstrations from the ECWS, including a presentation and firing of artillery from the Queen’s Sconce (TBC).
NB: CLOSING DATE – BECAUSE OF THE NEED TO PRE-ORDER THE CATERING PLEASE REGISTER BY FRIDAY 23 JUNE. FOR THE SAME REASON WE WILL BE UNABLE TO OFFER REFUNDS AFTER THIS DATE.
NOTE: WE CAN NOW TAKE BOOKINGS AFTER 23 JUNE BUT NO REFUNDS WILL BE POSSIBLE AFTER THAT DATE.
Accommodation in Newark is limited and attendees are urged to book swiftly. See www.visit-newark.co.uk for more information. Nottingham has several hotels near the station and tickets to Newark Castle station are inexpensive. The train journey from Nottingham to Newark Castle is about 20 minutes followed by a 10-15 minute walk across Newark Market Square to the NCWC on Appleton Gate.
Speakers may consider publishing their papers in the peer-reviewed, British Journal for Military History.
The conference is being financially underwritten and subsidised by the British Commission for Military History ie being undertaken on a not-for profit basis. We regret that BCMH is not in a position to offer grants to speakers.
