Eleventh International Thomas Hardy Conference, Dorchester, Dorset, U.K., July 23 to July 30, 1994. The Thomas Hardy Society organizes a conference every two years. It is an event that anyone with a love of Hardy should attend once in their lives. For some it becomes an addiction. Announcements109 This year the Conference will last for eight days, beginning with a reception and a country dance to the music of "Diggory Venn" on the Saturday night, through something like a dozen lectures, fourteen seminars, walks, coach trips into the Hardy country, a visit to Max Gale (by kind permission of Mr. and Mrs. T.W. Jesty), a new musical folk-drama England Expects! and a variety of other musical events. In the light of the projected rebuilding of a West Gallery in Stinsford Church, there will be considerable emphasis on music of the West Gallery tradition with contributions, including a West Gallery Morning Service, from The Madding Crowd (such a success last year), the inimitable Mellstock Band (who will also be playing for the dance on the final evening), and, hopefully, a remarkable group from Vermont who perform music from the American tradition of 18th, 19th and 20th century Sacred Harp and Shape-note music. It is also hoped to mount in the Dorset County Museum an exhibition of illustrations to Hardy's writings over the years culminating in Peter Reddick's recent engravings for The Folio Society.
