The Victorian Society’s ‘Welsh Heritage Day’

The Victorian Society’s ‘Welsh Heritage Day’
City Hall, Cathays Park, Cardiff, CF10 3ND
3 September, 10am – 3.30pm

Victorian heritage is too often underappreciated, forgotten and decaying –this event will bring together experts on chapels, theatres, miners’ institutes, great houses, industrial archaeology and more. Talks will include:

  • ‘Welsh Nonconformist Chapels: a national architecture at threat’ by Susan Fielding from the Royal Commission
  • ‘Victorian Powerhouse: an introduction to industrial Wales and its architectural legacy’ by Dr Peter Wakelin, former secretary of the Royal Commission
  • ‘Victorian and Edwardian Cardiff’ by Matthew Williams
  • ‘Theatres, miners’ institutes and performance places’ by Rob Firman
  • Heritage champion Griff Rhys Jones on his personal journey in conversation with Dr Greg Stevenson
  • ‘Campaigning for Victorian and Edwardian architecture in Wales: recent casework’ by Connor McNeill
  • ‘Roofing the World: slate landscape of north-west Wales & UNESCO World Heritage Site’ by Dr David Gwyn, author of the Royal Commission’s book Llechi Cymru/ Welsh Slate
  • ‘Reimagining Cyfarthfa: a green vision for Merthyr Tydfil’ by Geraint Talfan Davies
  • ‘Saving “I’m a Celebrity” Gwrych Castle’ by Mark Baker

The day includes refreshments and lunch when you can meet the Victorian Society’s conservation advisers for Wales, Connor McNeill and Tom Taylor. They will explain how the Victorian Society can help you save your local buildings from demolition, inappropriate redevelopment or just sheer neglect. Browse heritage organisations’ stalls and meet fellow heritage and Welsh history experts and enthusiasts.

Inspired by the talks, there will be limited places on a walk viewing some of Cardiff’s best of Victorian and Edwardian buildings from 3.30–5pm.
