In 2012 Lewes Priory Trust obtained a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund part of which was to fund three academic study days with distinguished speakers exploring aspects of Lewes Priory and life in a Cluniac monastery. These took place in October 2013 and February & October 2014. They proved so popular and successful that the programme has been extended to include a further day in October each year.
