  • Leading speakers


The emphasis of the Study Days is on the quality of the presenters. We choose only speakers who are widely recognised for their specialist knowledge based upon their own current research and who are also effective communicators with good presentation skills. Many are national or international experts in their field and have appeared on, or been consultants to TV, museums and the media.
  • Time to learn and discuss


Study Days start at 10:30am and finish about 4:00pm.
  • Personal attention

The Study Days usually have no more than about 30 participants to ensure that you can have the chance for a dialogue with the speakers and with other participants.
  • Historic location


Temporarily from Jan to March 2019 the Study days will be at The Britten-Pears School of Music, Woodbridge School, Burkitt Road, Woodbridge, IP12 4JH.

Later in 2019 Study Days will return to The Old Court within sight of the burial mounds at Sutton Hoo, courtesy of the National Trust.
