The Offa’s Dyke Association is delighted to co-host the 3rd Offa’s Dyke Collaboratory. This is your opportunity to listen to expert speakers and enjoy discussions and debate while sitting only yards from the monument itself.   

We are only a small charity and our ability to put on events like this is entirely dependent on the income that we receive from our members, also donations and any profit that we make from visitors to the Offa’s Dyke Centre.   A good audience will guarantee that we will be in a position to bring more events like this to the community.
