Dear all,

Given the rapidly changing situation around COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we have decided to postpone the British Milton Seminar scheduled for 21st March 2020.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused, but hope to host the same programme of speakers and papers in early October 2020 (date to be confirmed).

With thanks and best wishes,

Hugh Adlington and Sarah Knight (co-convenors)
