Annual Conference part 1 recording

March 28, 2021

Part 1 of our 2021 Annual Conference was a Practical Pilgrim session with panelists CPR trustees Brian Mooney and David Matthews, and CPR member and Via Francigena veteran Vicky Williamson from New Zealand. It was a great evening, ably facilitated by CPR member Victoria Field, with our 59 attendees queuing up to ask questions.

For those who couldn’t be with us, you can watch  a recording below or click on this link to access it on YouTube.

Part 2 takes place on Friday 16 April at 20h BST (GMT+1). This will be a more reflective and academic event. We are honoured to welcome Giovanni Caselli, to whom any pilgrim on the Via Francigena is indebted for his rediscovery of this ancient route back in the 1980s, and Dr Emma Pennington, Canon Missioner at Canterbury Cathedral, who will speak on “Why become a pilgrim? From medieval to modern, the therapeutic call of the road.”
