Canterbury Cathedral Pilgrimage:

ANNUAL PILGRIMAGE FOR 2019


Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019 at Canterbury Cathedral.


Time: TBC


Choughs: The Badge of a Pilgrim (Choughs) will be available at the Buffet Luncheon, if ordered in advance, and cost £10 (tbc). The Cathedral authorities have asked us not to sell them in the Cathedral, or its grounds, so they must be collected from the buffet luncheon venue.
Evensong: All attending the Pilgrimage are invited to join in Evensong at "TBA" pm (No charge)


Accommodation: Accommodation is available at various local hotels (A list of hotels is available on request). It is the responsibility of any Knight wishing to stay to make their own arrangements and pay the hotel directly. Many Canterbury Hotels do very good three night deals which may be worth considering.


Eligibility: Any Knight of the Order plus his wife/girl-friend/partner, neighbours, friends and children who should be old enough to appreciate the Service without disrupting it)
Dress: Gentlemen – Jacket and Collar and Tie (of the Order preferred to aid identification) – Ladies dress accordingly. Neither swords nor any other regalia of the Order are worn although members are encouraged to wear the tie of the Order as an aid to identification at the Cathedral Gates as they waive the entrance fee for us.


Booking: Please let Stan Brown (stanb5050@outlook.com – 07923 147164 know preferably by email or text message (requests in writing should be avoided and telephone bookings will not be accepted), if you are attending and if you wish to dine (We need to know the number attending the Cathedral Service as well as the Buffet Luncheon to avoid the problem of lack of chairs in the Cathedral which is inconvenient and delays the proceedings so let us know if you are attending whether you wish to partake in the buffet or not).


Payment: Cash is NOT required with booking. Payment by cash on the day is the preferred method of payment. (Credit/Debit cards are not accepted and cheques should be avoided, too).


Queries: Please contact Stan Brown with any queries (contact details above). Nothing is silly. If you want to know something, ask us and, if we know, we'll tell you!
