The Worshipful Company of Plumbers’ Annual Lecture
The Worshipful Company of Plumbers’ Annual Lecture, will take place on Monday 18th May at the Royal College of Physicians, Regent’s Park, London.
Each year the lecture is held to inform and inspire attendees from across the plumbing and heating industry, with a particular emphasis on sharing best practice and stimulating forward-thinking discussions supporting and promoting the craft.
This year, the keynote speech will be delivered by the current Master of the Worshipful Company of Plumbers, Dr Peter Rumley FSA.
Peter is an art historian, archaeologist, curator, author and historic buildings conservationist. He was also the National Trust’s consultant archaeologist during the conservation of Ightham Mote, Sissinghurst Castle and Garden, Kent.
Peter’s chosen subject for the 2020 lecture takes a step back in time to consider the early role of The Royal Plumbers and the part they had to play in some of the first water engineering projects undertaken in the City of London.
Tickets for the lecture with light refreshments cost £25, or for the lecture and dinner, £80. The event will start at 5pm followed by the lecture at 6pm. This will be followed by reception drinks at 7pm, then dinner at 7.30pm. The evening will end at approximately 9.30pm
