The University, together with English Heritage and Leicester City Council, will be holding an event entitled ‘Unlock the value of historic buildings’ at the LCB Depot, 21 Rutland Street, Leicester, on Wednesday 27 November from 9:00am to 12.30pm.

One of the key topics covered by the event will be how to get good returns from historic buildings.

It is vital that our towns and cities have the kind of conservation which helps schemes work commercially whilst making the most of England’s incredible legacy of historic buildings.

Dr Rebecca Madgin from the Centre for Urban History, who will be attending the event, said: “We’re really pleased to be part of this event and show the part the University and its Centre for Urban History has played in the redevelopment of historic buildings. Our role in researching and re-presenting a building’s history has added a new dimension to how we re-use buildings and interpret their history for the public.”

The event is being opened by Sir Peter Soulsby, Mayor of Leicester, and features award-winning Leicestershire developer Richard Blunt and the award-winning regeneration schemes at Makers Yard and the Silver Arcade in Leicester. The event will also include a walking tour through Leicester’s Cultural Quarter.
