British Senate Drumming Out Thursday 16 – Sunday 19 January 2020

ABode Hotel, Canterbury, England

Welcome to Canterbury, our venue for the British Senate Drumming Out in January 2020.  This ancient city in the south-east of England was first established in prehistoric times, where it was predominately inhabited by Celtic tribes.  In the first century AD it was captured by the Romans and named Durovernum Cantiacorum.  Today you will find plenty of evidence of Roman, Medieval and modern times in this compact and interesting cathedral city.  It is famous for Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and is the site of the historic Canterbury Cathedral founded in 597 and completely rebuilt in 1070.  The city itself is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
