2019 Theo Barker Memorial Lecture
The 2019 Theo Barker Memorial Lecture will be presented by Ms Barbara Hickson. Barbara is eminently qualified to speak on the subject of Heritage. A Mudgee-based architect, she was among the first Heritage Advisers recruited to work with Local Government Authorities in the Central West. For over 22 years, Barbara has offered heritage advice to thirteen councils, including Bathurst over that entire period. Barbara was closely involved with the development of the Cobb & Co Heritage Trail from Bathurst to Bourke and is the recipient of several National Trust awards for her heritage work.
This free public lecture, co-hosted by Bathurst District Historical Society, is held every two years in memory of Theo Barker, Bathurst historian.
