History Weekends

Our History weekends are proving to be a great success. Each event presents popular historians you’ll know from their books and TV appearances such Helen Castor, Dan Jones and Janina Ramirez. Our guided visits let you explore the remnants and traces of the ancient city of Canterbury with local experts like Professor Paul Bennett, MBE. Plus there’s a chance to hear from eminent scholars from CCCU and beyond as they present their most recent academic research.
