During the current pandemic the Society’s activities depend on prevailing government regulations or recommendations by other authorities. Our plans, as published on this website, should be understood in this light.
The Leamington Society is holding its Architectural Awards scheme again this year, postponed from last year. The scheme celebrates the best in local Architecture, Art and Landscape.
Anyone can nominate any project in Leamington, completed between April 2018 and April 2021, and visible to the public. Nominations must be received by Sunday 22 August. For full details and nomination forms (online or by post) go to Awards 2021. Winners will be announced at the awards reception on Thursday, 4 November.
Each year the Society conducts guided walks in September as part of the national Heritage Open Days (HODs) scheme. These walks were not held in 2020 due to the pandemic but are being resumed in 2021 when we will offer five walks. Details here.
The Society is planning its first live talk, since March 2020, on 16 September, 7.30 at Dormer Conference Centre in Leamington Spa. This is a joint meeting with the Warwick Society. This talk will also be broadcast live on Zoom; link on request from the Chairman of the Leamington Society. See Talks 2021 for details.
