Medieval Canterbury Weekend 2020

The History Weekend comprises 25 ‘events’, mainly lectures but also some guided tours of important medieval buildings in Canterbury. Among the highlights of the Weekend are talks by Caroline Barron, Diarmaid MacCulloch, Sophie Ambler, Michael Wood and Imogen Corrigan.

Sweeping across the Middle Ages, we have speakers on Anglo-Saxon society through to the eve of the Reformation, with much in-between!Lectures and guided tours are classified under five themes: ‘Kings and Queens; ‘War and Politics’; ‘The Church’, ‘Books and Manuscripts’ and ‘Social History’ to allow audiences to gain access to new interpretations, ideas and knowledge in a range of medieval topics.

The Weekend is organised by the CCCU Centre for Kent History and Heritage in conjunction with Canterbury Cathedral Archives & Library, which will provide two tours. Those attending book their chosen events using a pick-and-mix approach, using the descriptions provided on the Centre’s webpages: or phone: 01227 923690 or email
