Our HOLT conference this year – ‘Building on Philanthropy – the Modern Victorians’ – looked at the impact, example and legacy of Victorian philanthropy in London. Talks included the economics of 19th century housing; visionary Victorian projects; identifying historic value; heritage in a moral society and evolving philanthropy. Over 100 people joined us at the Society of Antiquaries, Burlington House.
