This year’s conference will be held at Newcastle University in late 2020. The original proposal was to hold the conference in April 2020, but this has been postponed as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.

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.

Details of the final programme will be available in due course.

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