Join BAMS for a non-residential conference based around Central St. Martins University of
the Arts in central London, and the historic surroundings of Harrow School in Harrow-on-
the- Hill. The conference will commence at 17:30pm on Friday and finish at 2pm on Sunday.

Our weekend will begin at Central St. Martins to enjoy a private view of the 2023 Student
Medal Project Exhibition with drinks and the prize-giving ceremony. It promises to be a
memorable occasion as we celebrate 30 years of the BAMS Student Medal Project.
We return to CSM on Sunday morning for the traditional BAMS workshop which is to be a
session about basic patination to be led by BAMS President Julian Cross.

On Saturday, delegates will make their own way to Harrow School where our base will be the
historic Old Speech Room Gallery for a full day of talks and events followed by the
conference dinner in the private dining room of a nearby pub. An exhibition of medals by
BAMS New Medallists and their mentors will be on show at the OSRG in a display which
will include work by the late Jane McAdam Freud. A wide range of medallic work will be
featured by our guest speakers: Lee R. Jones of The Royal Mint; Portuguese medal-maker
José Teixeira; sculptor Susan St. Lawrence from New Zealand and Natasha Burbridge, PhD
candidate in the History of Art at Warwick University. An informal show and tell session
will allow delegates to talk about the medals they have brought along.
The society’s AGM will be held on the Saturday as part of the weekend.

The delegate fee is £135 per person and includes:
The Friday evening reception.
One conference dinner to be held in Harrow-on-the-Hill on Saturday evening.
Lunch and refreshments during the day at Harrow School.
A full programme will be sent to booked delegates in advance.

Due to limitations of space at our venues, our delegate numbers are strictly limited.
Early booking is therefore advised.

Please note that Harrow School is set on a steep hill and the Old Speech Room Gallery is accessed via an external stone staircase. The venue has no step free access. Anyone with mobility issues should seek advice prior to booking by emailing [email protected]
