Opening Ceremony

Venue
Canterbury Cathedral

We will be holding our opening ceremony at Canterbury Cathedral. Situated in Canterbury city center, the Cathedral is a UNESCO world heritage site and is home to the Archbishop of Canterbury, the highest office in the Church of England and the head of the worldwide Anglican Communion. The cathedral, which is one of the oldest and most famous Christian structures in England, is also the scene of one of the most infamous assassinations in English history – that of Thomas Beckett by the followers of his adversary, Henry II in 1120.
