The Heraldry Society is sponsoring this exciting event.

Dear Members of The Heraldry Society,

I am happy to announce that the call for speakers has concluded and the Congress programme is soon to be finalised. It will feature an impressive international cast of lecturers, covering a diverse range of topics in relation to the theme of Reformation, Revolution, Restoration. Almost all  of the talks will be delivered in English. It is heartening, in view of recent global events, that experts from so many different countries have chosen to attend. There will be a total of 50 talks, of which 30 are to be on heraldry. At any given time there will be two lectures to choose from.  Heralds from around the world will be in attendance and will be in procession following the Grand Opening Ceremony. The event is under the Patronage of HRH the Earl of Wessex.  There will be considerable opportunities for International networking in between talks and during the various social activities. The committee aim to make this event notably convivial. We will have special visits to libraries and an exhibition, there will be music and song, opening and closing drinks, privileged access walking tours of the Colleges, all rounded off by a Gala Dinner in the Great Hall of King’s College. A fine buffet lunch will be provided on the lecture days, and excellent en suite accommodation is available at Clare College, in close proximity to the conference centre. The rooms are selling fast, so please book early to avoid disappointment. For those on a limited budget rooms can also be booked with shared facilities.

Please visit the Congress website congresscambridge2022.com for further details. Payment can be made online using PayPal, but a bank transfer is preferred, which can be arranged through myself by contacting me via coatofarms@theheraldrysociety.com.

Dr Paul A Fox, Secretary General.
