Poetry and Pilgrimage

We will do some close reading of writing about pilgrimage, discuss some of the ideas and write in response, all in the historic setting of the Marlowe Kit. No previous writing experience necessary but if you are a seasoned writer, expect to come away with several drafts of new work.

Time: 14.00-17.00

Registration fee: £10




Pilgrim Workshop – 14 June, Canterbury Cathedral, Clagett Auditorium 

Beginning with a mini-pilgrimage led by The British Pilgrimage Trust’s Guy Hayward, The Pilgrim Workshop is a full day of talks exploring the pilgrimage routes of Canterbury, engagement with natural and built heritage while on a pilgrimage and concluding with a panel of experienced pilgrims reflecting on their motivations for undertaking a pilgrimage and answering questions from the audience on both reflective and practical topics. 

This workshop will be of interest to ‘armchair’ pilgrims (those whose interests lie in the history and stories of pilgrimage), those who have walked or cycled a pilgrimage route and anyone who has the desire to go on a pilgrimage and would like to learn how to go about it. 

Time:  9.00-17.30

Location: The Workshop will take place in Canterbury Cathedral’s beautiful Clagett Auditorium.  Participants will have access to the Cathedral and grounds throughout the day.  

Registration Fee £10 (includes three rounds of refreshments, a buffet lunch and access to Canterbury Cathedral)
