This year AMOT is running a two day Army Museums Festival with three exciting elements to it.

Wednesday 11th October

09.30-17.00  Mercers’ Hall, Ironmonger Lane, London, EC1V 8HE     This day provides the traditional format of the AMOT Annual Conference, this year with a theme of Bricks & Clicks – collections both physical and digital. Delegates will receive a variety of presentations on sector updates and activity,  important case studies, and key note speakers from partners, stakeholders and those outside the sector, as well as a range of exhibitors.

18.00-20.00  Mercers’ Hall, Ironmonger Lane, London, EC1V 8HE     The evening following Conference will take on a whole new format this year. Drawing together a range of relevant organisations, the event will provide delegates with a relaxing opportunity to network with a range of organisations, gain support for their museum or collection, and build new contacts and partnerships to support future activity.

Thursday 12th October

10.00-16.00  Churchill War Rooms, London     The final day will run as a series of workshops to provide practical hands-on advice and guidance on key ares affecting army museum delivery. This will include evaluation, governance change, social media and wider communications support, audience development, and fund-raising.

When booking your place, please either book for the full festival, or ensure you tick each of the events you would like to attend over the course of the festival. The cost of the event is part funded by Arts Council England as a key component of our funded project Army Museums into the Future. This means that the fee you pay relates to the delivery of Day 1 only.
