The Deerhurst Lecture 2012 was originally scheduled to take place last September, but was postponed due to the illness of the lecturer, Professor Nicholas Brooks. Nicholas is now happily recovered and the rescheduled lecture will take place on Saturday 20th April 2013 at 7.30 pm at St Mary's Church, Deerhurst, Gloucestershire. The lecture will commemorate the millennium of the martyrdom in 1012 of St Ælfheah (Alphege), who began his ecclesiastical career at Deerhurst. The lecture will be given by Professor Nicholas Brooks of the University of Birmingham under the title of "St Ælfheah from Deerhurst to Martyrdom: Millennial Reflections".
