THE Sussex Downs will provide the backdrop to this year’s RICS Conference from October 12-14.
Delegates will be treated to a mix of ancient and modern as they split their time between the Gulbenkian Prize-winning Pallant House modern art collection in Chichester, the grandeur of Goodwood, home to the Duke of Richmond, and Parham House, near Pulborough, the Elizabethan country mansion set in 300 acres of deer park, whose 160ft long gallery is a stunning and decorative delight.
A study day at Parham on the Saturday will provide the main focus for the weekend, with a gala dinner at the Pallant House Gallery to follow.
Accommodation is being made available at the Hilton Avisford Park Hotel in Walberton near Arundel.
