Our 2020 conference will be held at Newcastle University on 16-17 April.

We are delighted to be returning to the North East (following recent conferences in the North West, East Midlands and South East) and to once again be working with Dr Martin Farr.

The first of our announced keynote speakers for this conference is Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay, a former Political Secretary to the Prime Minister (2016-19) and the convenor of the Conservative History Group.

A call for papers is available here – we strongly encourage you to share it as widely as possible. The deadline for submissions is Friday 6th March 2020.

We will publish details of the conference programme, recommended hotel and travel information once the deadline for submissions has passed.

The Thatcher Network is a not-for-profit organisation and any funds raised will be to cover the cost of the conference.
