Liskeard Arts Discovery Day – The Pilgrim Route
November 14, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm| £25
The Sword & the Staff – the Pilgrim Route to Santiago de Compostela by Gail Turner.
The “discovery” of the body of the apostle James opened a new and prosperous European pilgrimage route; and by the 12th century hospitals, monasteries, churches and shrines sprang up all along the Camino to attend to the spiritual and worldly needs of huge numbers of pilgrims. Cities along the route also prospered and expanded.
Pilgrims’ tales abound, and the Camino exerts a fascination to this day with many thousands, including Gail Turner, tramping the trail.
This event will be held at the Public Hall, it is an all day event. Meet at 9.30am for a 10am start. There will be a hour’s break for lunch – this time, to be taken independently – and the day should end around 3-3.30pm.
Booking is required, and the cost for the day is £25 per person. Open to all but priority is given to members, general bookings open on 1st October 2018 – email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the website www.liskeardartssociety.org.uk
