Annual Friends' and Benefactors' Event 

Individual supporters and representatives from our partner organisations are invited to our annual Friends and Benefactors event. Taking place in late February or early March in historic Durham City, this is an opportunity for our partners to meet with each other and with CCS staff and postgraduate students to hear about the CCS’s current research and recent outreach activities, and to share information and ideas for future CCS initiatives. There are presentations from CCS staff and students, with plenty of time for dialogue both during the meetings and informally during social time. The day concludes with a Mass of Thanksgiving for the CCS, and those planning to attend are also invited to arrive in Durham the evening beforehand for the annual Bishop Dunn Memorial Lecture and dinner at Ushaw. 

If you are interested in becoming a partner and would like to find out more about the CCS, please contact the CCS Administrator, Theresa Phillips, at or on +44 (0) 191 33 43952.
