Harper Adams in Edgmond, Shropshire, was the venue for this year’s excellent RNA conference, and the perfect ambiance it proved to be.
Before the conference proper began, RNA members gave talks and held workshops in the Wellington Library on the Thursday, and on the Friday morning, there was a highly successful ‘Love of the Past’, meet-the-author and book fair event at Blists Hill in the Victorian Town. To give you a flavour of the occasion, I’ve captured some of the magnificent costumes worn by the historical authors who participated in the event.
And finally from Blists Hill, no photographic record of an RNA event is complete without at least one photograph of a pair of shoes …
Moving on to the first day of the conference …
What better thing to do on a hot summer evening than gather together on the grass outside one of the houses in which we were staying. After dinner on the Friday evening, we did just that.
Now on to some of the talks I attended.
The evening draws to an end …
For those who stayed on, the last afternoon begins…
And on the final evening …
All there is left to say is, Roll on RNAConf15!
Over and out!
Oh, how it brings back memories. I want to go back! *sniffs*
It was the best conference I’ve been to, I think. I loved the venue, the food was terrific, and it was a very good programme. I’m already looking forward to the next conference, which will be in London. Roll on!
So many lovely photos to make me jealous – thanks Liz!
I’m glad that you enjoyed looking at them, Beverley. 🙂
I’m envious too! Thanks for sharing these great photos.
Maybe you’ll be in England at the time of the next RNA conference, Angela, or at least for one of the RNA parties. I do hope so.
Thank you for sharing these photos, Liz. Pleased to be included too!
It was lovely seeing you there, Jen. The photos I took of you were good, I thought.
Fabulous photos (as usual) Liz. I’ll be sharing if that’s OK as I didn’t take many this year. Other things on my mind! Great conference – looking fwd to next year. Hope to see you at the Winter Party.
Many thanks, Lizzie. You’re certainly welcome to share the photos. There’ve been occasions when I’ve been so engossed in gossipy things – delete that – so engrossed in mind -improving discussion, that I’ve ended up having to share the photos taken by others.
I look forward to seeing you at the Winter Party. 🙂
What fabulous pictures, Liz! Makes me miss conference all over again – seeing wonderful friends, meeting new ones and eating all that glorious food! My apologies for the terrible faces I seem to be pulling in every picture of me – I am so not good at pictures!
Thanks, Jane. I love having pictures of events like this to look back at. I didn’t think the photos of you were too bad – not all of them, anyway!! Next time I see you, I’ll try to get a better likeness. Be warned!
