Annual Bloomfield Day and AGM


The annual Bloomfield Day and AGM is scheduled for Saturday 31 March; 10.30 for 11.00 a.m. at Nottingham Trent University, which is generously providing hospitality as usual for the event. The address of the venue is George Eliot Building, Clifton Campus, Clifton Lane, Nottingham, NG11 8NS. A buffet lunch will be provided at cost price.  

This year we shall have three principal speakers – Professor Bridget Keegan, from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, Dr Andrew Rudd from London University, and our own secretary Dr Kerri Andrews from Strathclyde University. We shall also feature a musical interlude provided by Professor John Goodridge of Nottingham Trent and a possible a visual input by Ed Fordham. This is the largest and most varied programme we have ever put forward and I do hope as many members as possible will be able to join us for what promises to be a very stimulating occasion.

Later, we shall hold our AGM, which will review the past year, present the accounts and provide members with an opportunity to air their views and offer suggestions for future activities. We expect to conclude by 3.15 p.m. approximately.
