British Quakers plan for 'Canterbury 2011' global event in Kent

Canterbury Cathedral
According to the Quaker News (p. 3), British Quakers have already begun planning a gathering for Summer 2011 for "Friends from Britain Yearly Meeting and other parts of the world."

Next year's planned gathering of Quakers is titled "Quakers: Canterbury 2011." The proposed site for the international gathering is the campus of Kent, which overlooks Canterbury (complete with a view of the famed cathedral).

At Canterbury 2011, which includes a "big top" theme, there will be special interest meetings, discussion groups, and opportunities to explore Quaker work.

For more information about the event, contact Karl Gibbs (Tel: 020.7663.1109) or contact him via email at
