NICHOLAS II CONFERENCE - 27 OCTOBER 2018
Topic: Nicholas II

Dear Friends of Royal Russia

I am pleased to announce that the details for the upcoming Nicholas II Conference have now been finalized.

Since its inception back in May 2017, the conference has undergone many changes.

Initially, I was going to host a two day event, and while I had enough speakers interested in participating, I decided that this was too large an event to organize effectively from the other side of the Atlantic.

It was also my plan to host the conference in London, however, during my visit in November to assess halls and other venues, the costs were simply beyond my budget. I want to make the event affordable to all who are interested in attending.

It was also during this trip, that I met with more than a dozen people – including friends of Royal Russia living in England, and members of the Russian Orthodox Church – all of whom offered valuable advice on planning this conference. I am indebted to each of them for their respective ideas and suggestions.

After reviewing numerous options, including power point presentations, I decided to take the conference in an entirely new direction altogether. Four speakers will present six papers, each talk followed by a 10-15 minute question and answer session. A 30 minute break will include refreshments, and an opportunity for attendees to meet and talk with speakers and make new acquaintances.

The conference will be held at St. John’s Orthodox Church in Colchester, Essex – an hour’s train ride from London. I am delighted that the Russian Orthodox Church will be involved in this historic event.

The date remains unchanged – Saturday, 27th October – 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Tickets are £25.00 per person, and can only be ordered online using a credit card or PayPal.

Over the past few months, people from as far away as America and Australia have contacted me expressing an interest in attending. As a suggestion for those travelling from abroad, you could very nicely combine the conference on 27 October with the exhibition Russia: Royalty & the Romanovs which opens on 9 November, in the Queen’s Gallery, London.

Given that I will eventually be returning to England to live, it is my sincere hope and wish that the autumn Conference in Colchester will be a precursor for future Royal Russia events.

On a more personal note, I am very excited about the prospects of hosting such an event in England, particularly in the year of two very important dates in the life of Nicholas II: the 150th anniversary of his birth, and the 100th anniversary of his death and martyrdom.

I look forward to meeting both old and new friends to share our mutual interest in Russia’s last emperor and tsar, as well as one of the Russian Orthodox Church’s most revered passion bearers.

If you have any questions regarding the conference, please do not hesitate to contact me by email - royalrussia@yahoo.com 

Sincerely
PAUL GILBERT
