Web Toolbar by Wibiya Megalithomania Conference 2020 Postponed Until May 2021


2020 has been a strange year with a few things to report on. Firstly, and after much discussion with the team, the Town Hall of Glastonbury and the speakers, we have had to postpone Megalithomania until May 8th - 9th 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak. A majority of the 2020 speakers have agreed to come back and speak then, and the tours will remain exactly the same. For those who have already booked tickets for the 2020 event, these tickets (for both conference and day tours) will remain valid for the 2021 Conference and you will therefore be booked well in advance and no further action from you is required.

We have taken a big financial hit with this as we've paid for many services, advertising and promotion already that we cannot get back (and will have to do so again for 2021). It would also be worth talking to your B&B or Hotel about transferring those dates to the 2021 dates, as no doubt they are struggling also and supporting local businesses, events and individuals in these times is essential. 

As a bonus, we have a 90% off deal on all our conference downloads until 13th May. Basically you only pay about 20p - 40p per lecture (or less!). Use this discount code 'SAVE90' at the final checkout. Browse those videos here: www.megalithomania.co.uk/dvd.html and you can download them to your computer (not ipads or smartphones though). Also, below is a link to our Youtube channel that has most of the previous conferences to view for free, that you can watch at your leisure whilst we all spend more and more time indoors! www.youtube.com/MegalithomaniaUK

Megalithomania returns on May 8th-9th 2021 at the Town Hall, Glastonbury. We are a two-day event, with tours on the Friday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
