Update from the Chairman

Dear NAP Members

I hope you have all had a Merry Christmas and are looking forward to a Happy New Year.

Since we last met back in September, I thought it would be appropriate to give you a brief update on what NAP has been doing these past few months.

Trying to secure the funding for the repairs to the West Front continues to be a priority for us but also a challenge. We are working closely  with John Darlington of the World Monument Fund who is in discussions with several of his contacts who may be in a position to provide further financial support for the works to be carried out.

By their very nature, these take time to reach a conclusion so patience and resilience are key attributes to bear in mind, but I am hopeful that we may have some positive news to report before very long.

For some time we have been considering organising a Byronathon at Newstead Abbey. This would entail a  non-stop reading of some/most/all of Byron’s poems by a range of readers over an agreed length of time.

We are very much at the start of the planning stage.



Best Regards


Dr Patrick Candler
