en's Breakfast Meeting - with Full English Breakfast £7.50

Start 08.30 prompt

Speaker: Rodney Schofield

Five hundred years ago this month a small event occurred, which was to have huge repercussions for European history.

Rodney Schofield, who is a Roman Catholic priest will reflect not so much on the theology as on the remarkable events of 500 years ago.

On October 31 1517 a monk called Martin Luther hung up or nailed a document which he called the 95 Theses on the church door of the castle in Wittenberg near Berlin. This document critical of the church's teachings sparked a revolution which we now call The Reformation which divided Europe and led to 200 years of conflict.

The Huguenots of Spitalfields

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 17:30

The Huguenots of Spitalfields

17.30 - 18.30

Speaker: Dan Cruickshank

One of Britain's best-loved art historians and BBC television presenters Dan Cruickshank has a special interest in the history of architecture. He has lived in Spitalfields for the past four decades in a house first occupied by French Huguenot silk weavers in the 18th century. "I simply don't want it to change," he once said of it. "Many of the Georgian houses close by have been altered too much. It pained me even to put electricity in." Here he draws on his love of the area with a discussion of the Huguenots and their influence in Spitalfields, Canterbury and beyond.

Tickets at £10.50 are available via The Canterbury Festival Box Office: Booking Required
