Our next conference will be held at Newcastle University on April 15-16 2021. Our proposal was to hold this in April 2020, but that was not possible due to the COVID-19 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.

If your paper was accepted for the 2020 conference, you will receive an automatic invite to speak at our 2021 event.

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