Battlefields Trust - Statement on Events and Coronovirus 

In light of government direction on the COVID-19 virus the Battlefields Trust has postponed its own public events up to the end of October 2020.  The Trust will keep the situation under review and will take a decision on events beyond October 2020 in the coming weeks once more is known about how the situation is developing. Please keep an eye on the Battlefelds Trust Events pages for further updates and rescheduled dates for events when they become available.

Members will be aware that in response to the enforced postponement or cancellation of its events the Battlefields Trust  launched a new programme of members-only online talks. These have have proved so popular that the decision has been taken to make these an ongoing benefit of membership.
