BQSG 2021 Seminar 22 – 24 October 2021 moves online!

Dear BQSG member,

Although we have every reason to look forward to better times ahead, the BQSG Committee has decided that we cannot proceed as planned with our October Seminar in Darlington.

Many uncertainties remain regarding potential restrictions and social distancing requirements which may or may not apply in late October. These uncertainties will not be resolved in the short term and contractual requirements, notably significant financial penalties for cancellation, mean that we have had to make our decision now. 

We will refund in full the seminar fees we have continued to hold: Laura will be in touch with those members individually.  (

Our significant disappointment over this decision is tempered by the fact that we are in a far better position - this year - to create a version of our Seminar online.  It cannot offer all that “the real thing” could but we hope that an online Seminar (via Zoom) will provide stimulation and enjoyment and will attract members who, for one reason or another, have been unable to attend in person as well as those who attend regularly.

Our plans for the online Seminar are at an early stage.  We will announce the Seminar programme in the summer edition of Culcita but, in the meantime, please keep 22nd to 24th October 2021 free.
If you have any queries, please contact
Laura Cochran, Seminar Organiser via
Best wishes,
