The Island Called Nowhere: William Morris and George Orwell compared

Location: 
St. Augustine's Church, Richmond Rd., CB4 3PS

Utopia means either “the good place” or “no place”. In his story News from Nowhere (1890), William Morris imagines the perfectly happy society and calls it “nowhere”. Nearly 60 years later, George Orwell does the opposite in Nineteen Eighty Four, imagining the sort of society we now call Dystopia. But in some ways, Utopia and Dystopia resemble one another. Clive Wilmer, poet and critic, Emeritus Fellow at Sidney Sussex College, and Master of John Ruskin’s Guild of St George, explains all.

'To be a Pilgrim?'

Location: 
St. Augustine's Church, Richmond Rd., CB4 3PS

What is the difference between going on a pilgrimage and going on a walk? What makes pilgrimage a universal cultural phenomenon? Why has there been a resurgence of interest in spiritual journeying? Drawing on her experience as a long-distance walker, Camino pilgrim and one-time medieval researcher, Gill Mead will look at the history of pilgrimage and attempt to discover why, even in this day and age, “longen folk to goon on pilgrimages”.
