    Medieval Canterbury Weekend 2024

    Friday 26 April – Sunday 28 April | Augustine House & Hall, Rhodaus Town, Canterbury, CT1 2YA

    The Medieval Canterbury Weekend, organized by the Centre for Kent History & Heritage at Canterbury Christ Church University, returns for 2024 with a programme of 19 talks and its hallmark guided visits. Among the speakers coming to Canterbury are Dr Marc Morris, Dr Janina Ramirez, Professor Chris Woolgar, Professor Louise Wilkinson and Professor Mark Bailey.

    Audiences will be able to hear from experts about a wide range of topics including what we know about the rebels who followed Jack Cade, what it was like to live in a medieval urban house, why foliate heads (‘Green Man’ images) proliferate c. 1400 and what was the relationship between the Italian Renaissance and England.

    As before, the organisers’ intention is to raise money for the Ian Coulson Memorial Postgraduate Award fund that continues to support postgraduates studying Kent history and archaeology projects. Once tickets go on sale, they can be purchased for individual talks and at discount for bulk purchases. There will be a special student discount for some events.

    The bookshop will have its regular bookstall and there will be facilities for authors to sign newly purchased books.
