Facilities and accommodation

The majority of the conference is held in Canterbury, Kent. The main conference programme is held at the University of Kent and there are some retreat days and large services at Canterbury Cathedral.

The university campus is set in 350 acres of parkland overlooking the city and its historic cathedral. With multiple meeting venues, presentation spaces, cafeterias, bars and garden spaces, the facilities at the University are ideal for a conference of this size.

For anyone wishing to explore, the city centre is about five minutes away by bus or taxi; walking takes about 20 minutes. There will also be a number of conference transport arrangements during the conference.

Over £120 million has been invested in recent years to provide new accommodation at the University and carry out full refurbishment of the campus accommodation. Between 2017-18 the university refurbished 520 rooms in Park Wood to the highest standard.
